Storm Sewer System 
Please know that by blowing your lawn and garden debris into the streets can be bad and result in street flooding.  This debris ends up in the stormwater drainage system and over time, it can clog pipes, resulting in street flooding.as well as possibly backing up into homes.  We ask that you PLEASE help our community by keeping the streets and drainage areas around your property clean and clear of litter, leaves, and grass clippings.

Soil Testing  -  What's in your soil?  Understanding the soil test can give you the information you need to make good decisions.  Please visit the Stark Soil and Water website for more information.

Rain Barrels -  Why buy a rain barrel?  A rain barrel captures water from a roof and holds it for later use such as gardens or indoor/outdoor plants.  It prevents water from entering into the storm drains, decreasing the risk of flooding.  For more information regarding how you can keep your water sources clean please visit https://www.lakecountyohio.gov/smd/whats-stormwater/what-can-you-do
