PLEASE KEEP GRASS CLIPPINGS OUT OF STORM DRAINS

Please keep lawn clippings out of storm drains and streets. Large amounts often clump together and clog the drain causing flooding. If you use chemicals on your lawn or garden they may contaminate the water which runs off after rains or lawn watering. When lawn clippings decompose they release carbon and nitrogen which feeds algae. The algae uses up oxygen in the water and contributes to fish kills. Please keep storm drains and streets free of cut grass.
