Summer Stormwater Control Measure Maintenance Tips

Summer thunderstorms bring wind and rain which can move trash and debris into Stormwater Control Measures (basins, green infrastructure, detention units etc.) making monthly debris removal maintenance important to prevent clogs that could cause flooding.

Our Stormwater Control Measure Maintenance Tips outreach campaign continues this month to deliver useful information and seasonal tips for property owners, managers, contractors, and HOAs to assist with stormwater control measure maintenance needs.

You can see these SCM specific emails for June by clicking on the links below. There is a subscribe option in the top left corner of the page if you would like to be added to our email lists.

(See links to our spring April tips in this blog. See links to our winter February tips in this blog.)
