Property Owners Encouraged to Clear Storm Sewer Catch Basins
Property Owners in the City of Janesville are reminded that it is important for storm sewer catch basins to be cleared in order to allow for proper storm water drainage. Especially with the amount of snow we have received and threat of warm temperatures and rain over the weekend, localized flooding is more likely to occur when storm sewer catch basins are blocked with debris.
The City of Janesville has approximately 7,600 storm sewer catch basins across 332 miles of paved streets. While City crews attempt to keep catch basins clear, property owners are encouraged to do their part to prevent localized flooding by clearing debris from catch basins in front of their properties or in their neighborhoods. Please contact the City Services Center with any questions at (608) 755-3110.
