Autumn leaves can clog drains, county warns

Whatcom County Public Works maintenance and operations division officials reminds county residents that maintenance of driveway culverts is the property owner’s responsibility and that simple preventive maintenance of driveway culverts before the heavy fall and winter rain can help property owners avoid potentially serious problems. 

Residents should check culvert openings for any debris, especially leaves, weeds, brush, and tree limbs. For more information, call 360/676-6759.
