RCOC Reminds Residents to Keep Drains Clear

catchbasin2With heavy rains expected tonight and tomorrow, The Road Commission for Oakland County (RCOC) issued a reminder to residents, businesses, and mowing contractors to not blow cut grass, leaves, and tree debris back into the roadway along the curb or into roadside ditches.

These elements can plug the catch basins and roadside ditches that are designed to provide storm-water drainage and prevent flooding of the road system throughout Oakland County. So, keep the drains and ditches free of debris and let the rain drain.
