The following conditions are considered an emergency:
If you know of a storm inlet that needs to be cleaned out, please:
Citizens are reminded that much flooding is caused by the dumping of leaves, grass clippings, and tree limbs into drainage ways. To prevent flooding problems, please dispose of such items properly.
*Some foam or suds in the stream is natural, especially as snow-melt runoff occurs in the spring accumulating along shorelines and river banks, and in coves and eddies. Foam from silt or erosion is usually a dirty brown color and smells like fish or earth and is often seen in early morning and is usually gone by midday. In contrast, foam from detergent will have a noticeable perfume smell.
