Lynnfield Residents asked to clean storm drains

Residents asked to clean storm drains

The Town of Lynnfield is asking residents to help prevent flooding by clearing the storm drains around their homes of snow and debris.

In anticipation of heavy rains, warm temperatures and resulting melting of snow and ice, flooding conditions could quickly arise in Lynnfield. While public works crews will be busy for the next few days clearing culverts and attending to problem spots, it is impossible for Town workers to clear every storm drain and catch basin in Town. We are asking resdient to help prevent flooding in their newighborhoods by clearing away any snow and ice, as well as leaves, twigs, trash and other debris from storm drains and catch basins around their home.

Thank you for your cooperation!
