What to do if snow & ice is blocking my storm inlet?
During winter, inlets can become plugged with snow and ice. 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 snow and ice with a shovel if you can do so safely from your property. Do not venture into the road to clear an inlet. If you cannot safely clear the snow and ice please contact the Highway Division at (262) 782-5029.
