Prevent localized flooding!

 Fallen leaves and debris have a tendency to block storm drains as they’re carried away by wind and storm water runoff, occasionally this leads to localized flooding. Residents can keep their property and community safer from flood risk by hauling away leaves and regularly checking nearby storm drains before issues arise. flood
