The Department of Public Works has initiated a program of drainage system maintenance. Major drainage channels, ditches and structures are periodically checked and maintained so that stoppage is minimized and the systems are allowed to flow freely. A clear drainage system can convey stormwater more efficiently and can minimize flood damage to buildings and property.
Citizens can greatly assist in this effort by keeping catch basins in front of their property free of debris. Also, avoid dumping debris, grass clippings, etc., into drainage ditches and catch basins. City of Lindsborg’s ordinance prohibits dumping of any material into any portion of the drainage system.
Contact the Department of Public Works for information concerning this program or to report drainage problems or illegal dumping.
