Importance of Keeping Storm Sewers Clear of Debris
Leaves, grass, and brush debris can cover inlets and block water from flowing into them. Materials of this nature entering the storm sewers decompose and deplete dissolved oxygen that aquatic life needs to survive. Grass and leaves also encourage algae growth.
