ACHD reminding residents to keep storm drains clear

Boise - With rain and snow in the forecast, the Ada County Highway District is asking residents to help keep storm drain inlets clear of debris to avoid clogging. Blocked storm drains can lead to ponding as water attempts to flow off the roads to the storm drains.
Residents who see storm drains covered by leaves, snow or any other debris should remove it. When clearing debris from the storm drain inlets, residents should not remove the grates. Anyone Discarding leaves in their yard should not blow or rake leaves into the streets or gutter.

ACHD is also asking residents to locate the storm drain near your home while it is still visible. You can find a link to a map that shows the storm drain inlet locator on our website.
