During winter months, DPW Streets Maintenance staff are constantly clearing City drainages to maintain the flow of water. Large storms, like the one on October 24th, cause sediment and debris to flow into the systems and can cause potential blockages. Staff clean out these blockages by hand or with a large vacuum truck like you see in the photo. Below, you will see Streets lead worker Tyler Nord operating the Vactor truck clearing a deep catch basin. DPW will continue these maintenance activities throughout the winter months.
