Keep Storm Drains Clear and Watch for Fallen Trees, Tree Limbs, and Signs

The Ada County Highway District has two reminders for residents in anticipation of continuous wet weather throughout the day.

ACHD asks residents to check their nearest storm drain to help prevent localized flooding. Residents can identify their nearest storm drain by checking the storm drain map. Clearing the storm drains allows water to easily run into the storm drain system.

Residents should not try to remove the storm drain grates. If a storm drain is blocked by leaves, grass or other debris, residents should use a rake to clear debris away from the storm drain. Disposing of the debris in a receptacle will prevent it from finding its way back to the drain.

In addition to localized flooding, inclement weather can sometimes lead to downed trees and signs throughout the county.

Heavy localized flooding, downed trees and downed signs should be reported to ACHD as soon as possible. Residents can make urgent reports on the weekend by calling the Ada County Sherrif Office non-emergency dispatch (208)377-6790. To make reports during regular business hours, residents should make these reports to ACHD's main line (208)387-6100 or by using the TellUs system.
