Rain in the forecast. Clear drains and prevent flooding.

Fall DrainWith rain in the forecast, flooding can occur on your street. Help clear your local storm drain of leaves and other debris to keep the water flowing.

Every autumn Seattle Public Utilities faces a big job keeping storm drains clear – there are over 70,000 of them around the city!

Remember to clear your drain only if it is safe. Stay out of the street and work from a sidewalk if possible. Put all leaves and compostable debris in your yard waste cart. If the drain is still clogged, call our drainage problem hotline at 206-386-1800.
