County asks the community to help reduce flooding

Did you know raking leaves, grass clippings, or other debris into the street, ditch, gutter, or storm drains can potentially pollute local waterways?

Pulaski County passed a storm water management ordinance in 2007 to assist with keeping local waterways clean and free of debris. The ordinance regulates residential and construction site builds to reduce the negative effects of storm water runoff.

Pulaski County would like your assistance in storm water protection by not raking leaves, grass clippings, or debris into the street, ditch, gutter, or storm drains. Not only is this potentially harmful to local waterways, it can also clog the drainage systems and create flooding on your property, your neighbor’s property or in the street.
