If there is trash or debris on a storm drain, please help the City of York by removing it prior to the storm so water can flow freely into the storm drain without disruption. Residents should wait until after the storm to put their trash out. Do not drive through standing or flowing water. Do not let children play in the storm water.
If you encounter hazards on the roads, you may call 911 to report it.
