Cherry Hill DPW, Police remind residents to help keep storm drains free from debris

Leaf removal season is underway and Cherry Hill Township crews are working to remove leaves; however, they are slightly behind schedule.

Cherry Hill Township is expected to see heavy rainfall the week of Dec. 8, and leaves placed on the curb line can cause flooding and hazardous road conditions. Below you will find several ways in which you can assist with keeping the roads of Cherry Hill safe.

WAYS YOU CAN HELP

Storm drains have limited capacity and flooding may occur in low lying areas and/or at high tide during an initial downpour based on the severity of the storm. Since Public Works crews may take several hours to respond to reports of flooding, clogged storm drains or downed tree limbs, you can assist by:
• Checking drainage systems and removing debris as necessary.
• Collecting and properly disposing of heavy leaf falls before storms occur.
• Removing leaves and debris from storm drain inlets with a rake or shovel.
• Driving slowly and carefully, particularly where water has accumulated on roadways.
• Staying tuned to local radio and television news sources for the latest weather information.
• Tree crews will respond to downed trees and limbs based on the seriousness of the hazard.

During a storm, priority is given to removing trees and limbs from streets and sidewalks. Crews will also prioritize street tree and limb removal from homes, cars and power lines.
