Champaign experienced two high wind events last week, and Public Works street sweepers responded quickly to clean up the fallen leaves in order to keep them from clogging storm drains. The map below shows the areas of town covered (so far) by City crews who worked 10-hour days for more than a week. City crews are still out working on sweeping up other areas of town so please give them a little extra room and park off the streets whenever possible so they can do their work more efficiently and safely.
You can also help prevent localized flooding through the City’s Adopt a Drain program. This program allows Champaign’s residents to help protect the environment and reduce street flooding by committing to keep storm drains in their neighborhoods clear of leaves and debris.
