SeaTac Public Works Department wants YOU to help prevent localized flooding

Your SeaTac Public Works Department wants to share the following message:

Leaves and debris can cause localized flooding when they cover storm drains in the street or block pipes located in open ditches.

Blowing or raking fallen leaves onto the street and into ditches creates a safety and storm water hazard to your property and surrounding neighborhood.

The storm drains and ditches catch and convey the rainwater into the nearest stream, helping to keep excess water away from your property and reduce flooding.

Check to make sure storm drains in your neighborhood are clear of debris before major storm events

Rake fallen leaves into your yard waste bin, not into the street or ditch

Use leaves as mulch on garden beds and landscaped areas
