Due to predictions for rainfall throughout the day on Saturday, March 9, residents may see some localized street flooding in Iowa City.

Residents can minimize the impacts of the rainfall 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 street flooding issues, please call the Iowa City Police Department's non-emergency line at 319-356-5275. In an emergency, call 911.
