Remember to clear your drain only if it is safe. Stay out of the street and work from a sidewalk if possible. People clearing drains should wear bright colors, try to work from the curb side instead of the street and have someone watch for approaching vehicles. Residents should clear away only the material that is above the drain’s grate, and never remove the grates. Put all leaves and compostable debris in your yard waste cart. If the drain is still clogged, call the Public Works Department at 425-788-3434.
