What to do if my storm inlet is plugged?
During an extreme rain event, inlets can become plugged with debris. City crews are often sent to clear these obstructions when they become aware of them, but they cannot clear all inlets at the same time. To protect your property against flooding, consider adopting an inlet that is near your house and keep it clear of debris with a shovel or rake if you can do so safely from your property. Do not venture into the road to clear an inlet or wade through deep or murky water. If you cannot safely clear the debris please contact the Highway Division at (262) 782-5029.
