Clear out storm drains to help prevent street flooding
Thanks to heavy snowfall received in the past week, followed by a sudden climb in temperature, residents may see some localized street flooding in the coming days. Residents can minimize the impacts by clearing out the storm drains near their homes to allow melting snow and rain to drain effectively.

Although crews will be clearing catch drains as they are able, the help of residents makes a big difference in getting them cleared.

To report drainage issues, use the ICgovXpress mobile app, which is available for iPhone and Android devices. Search “GoRequest" where you get your apps. You can also make a report online at
