Keep your neighborhood unplugged

The Colorado Springs Stormwater Division is asking residents to keep the storm drains clear.  This is the time of year when people prune trees and clean up their yards.  But if left near a storm drain, that refuse can find its way into the drainage system and even into Fountain Creek.

Tips for lawn maintenance:

  • Do not leave or sweep grass clippings or other yard waste into streets, sidewalks, driveways or parking lots, especially around storm drains
  • Compost or mulch yard waste. Grass clippings naturally fertilize lawns and do not cause thatch in Colorado
  • Do not over water lawns
