Help Us Keep Drains Clear
Leaves are falling, but remember – blowing or sweeping those leaves into the street creates a flooding risk for you and your neighbors. The City’s two street sweepers run seven days a week to remove leaves from 306 miles of lanes during this time of year, but you can help by removing leaves and debris from drains near your home. Learn how at www.bothellwa.gov/floodprevention.
