Daily Buzz | Adopt a Storm Drain to Help Prevent Flooding
Plus, ELPAC meets tonight
Good morning, Burlington!
Quick correction from yesterday: the WBCN and the American Revolution film screening is Tuesday, not Wednesday. Sorry ’bout that!
The Conservation Commission is asking residents to work together to help keep our drains clear in the case of storms and, later in the season, melting snow. Take a moment when you leave your home in the next week and note the closest 2 or 3 storm drains - and then keep an eye on them. If one becomes covered, take a moment to clear it of any leaves or other debris. Obviously, you can do this whenever you notice a blocked drain - not just near your home.
Yesterday on a 2.5-mile walk through my neighborhood, I noticed several drains that were blocked with leaves - something I might not have taken note of if not for BCAT’s report of the Conservation Commission’s appeal to Adopt a Storm Drain!
