MOUNTLAKE TERRACE — Fall is here and with heavy wind and rain, it is recommended to take time to protect your home and property. Late autumn brings falling leaves along with heavy rains that can clog storm drains and cause flooding. Residents can help prevent flooding by keeping storm drains clear of leaves and debris.
The city is encouraging residents to locate storm drains on or near their property and help keep catch basin covers free of leaves and debris. Leaf debris can be disposed of with other yard waste and cannot be swept or blown into the street.
The city’s street sweeper has suffered mechanical issues recently so beginning October 31, the city is contracting with Whirlwind Clean and Green to assist in keeping up during peak leaf drop season. As is usual this time of year, the goal is to clean up leaf litter and other debris before it enters into and clogs the storm drainage system.
For more information about the city’s fall weather response, please contact Recreation and Parks Director Jeff Betz at (425) 640-3101.
