Stormwater Notice: Leaves blocking storm inlets

October 17, 2018

Every fall, the Water Pollution Control Department (WPC) receives complaint calls regarding street flooding and standing water within the roadway and ditch line. Most often the water is being detained by storm inlets whose grates are covered with leaves. In the spring and summer, complaint calls are related to grass and leaves blown into the roadway. Residents should refrain from blowing leaves or grass into the roadway or ditch line.

Residents should call WPC at (330) 841-2591 to report the depositing of leaves, grass and any ILLEGAL DUMPING of materials into the City’s storm sewer system. This is part of WPC’s ongoing efforts to reduce flooding in the City of Warren.
