Notice on Hazardous Downspouts Disconnects
from your Environment Committee
You recently had one or more downspouts disconnected possibly resulting in water now draining down the driveway. In the winter, melt water goes down the pipe and freezes on paved surfaces creating a severe slipping hazard for you and pedestrians using your sidewalks and driveway.The purpose of the mandatory disconnect program is to redirect water from the roof onto your lawn or garden where it soaks into the ground instead of flowing down the drains which go to the storm sewers. Roof water is one of the main sources of storm water sewer overloading which results in sewer backups, erosion and pollution of rivers and streams. The water flowing down your driveway also goes to the street and then into the storm sewers so is not meeting the city guidelines. City approved contractors who disconnect downspouts know this.If directing your disconnect to your lawn creates a tripping hazard or other problem, the city can help you. Call 311 or go to this special website.
