It's easy! When it's safe to do so, clear the catch basin of leaves and debris and make a path for the melting snow. You will help the streets get back to normal quickly after weather events.
There is no doubt that one of the most challenging times is the period right after a major snowfall when our weather turns warm again and the snow starts to melt. We've all stepped on what we thought was a packed pile of snow only to find ourselves ankle deep in ice cold water that has collected due to a clogged catch basin. Also in the fall, the catch basin near your home may be obstructed with leaves and other debris that create puddles at the side of the road.
