Removing Leaves and Debris from Catch Basins Help Keep Water Flowing


As summer ends and leaves start to fall, remember this: Leaves that collect on top of catch basins in the streets block rainwater from entering the storm drain system, creating flooding in streets in your neighborhood.
The City of Bonney Lake Public Works staff performs a variety of maintenance activities throughout the year to keep the insides of catch basins free of debris. You can help. All you need is a rake, shovel, or broom and a receptacle.
What you can do
– Clear leaves from catch basins near your and even a neighbor’s house or business. Dispose of leaves with yard waste.
– Clear other debris from on top of catch basins. Place this debris in a trash can.
– Sweep debris from your sidewalk and driveway. Put debris in a trash can. Do not sweep debris into the gutter or catch basin. This is against the City‘s code.
In the winter, keep the catch basins flowing by removing snow and ice from the grate.

Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How.

National Preparedness Month (NPM), recognized each September, provides an opportunity to remind us that we all must prepare ourselves and our families now and throughout the year. This NPM will focus on planning, with an overarching theme: Disasters Happen. Prepare Now. Learn How.

Take time to learn lifesaving skills − such as CPR and first aid, check your insurance policies and coverage for the hazards you may face, such as flood, earthquakes, and tornados. Make sure to consider the costs associated with disasters and save for an emergency. Also, know how to take practical safety steps like shutting off water and gas.

The devastating hurricanes and wildfires of 2017 reminded the nation of the importance of preparing for disasters.  Often, we will be the first ones in our communities to take action after a disaster strikes and before first responders arrive, so it is important to prepare in advance to help yourself and your community.

Check out tips and download handouts on how to prepare for a disaster by visiting: https://www.ready.gov/september.

Also, join us in the world’s largest earthquake drill on October 18, 2018. Register now at www.ShakeOut.org. The following is a one-minute preparedness tip brought to you by ShakeOut designed to get you ready for earthquakes that’s fun, quick, and rewarding.
