[ARCHIVED] Blocked Storm Drains May Cause Flooding

icy storm drain

As we warm up over the next few days, melting snow, sand, and leaves may clog storm drains. Clogged drains can quickly cause residential flooding and lead to unsafe driving conditions.

How can this be avoided? Residents can help mitigate the potential of residential flooding by keeping drains, gutters and ditches along your property clean and clear. If your neighborhood storm drain is clogged with melting ice, leaves or debris, if you are able, reach for a shovel, rake, or broom to quickly clear blockages and alleviate any pooling.

City of Mountlake Terrace crews have been working 24 hours a day since February 4 to clear the snow off roads. For additional flooding concerns, or if you are not able to safely clear a storm drain, please call our Public Works Department at (425) 670-8264 7:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. For after hour emergencies, please call 911 and they will reach our on-call staff.
