Elmhurst residents asked to help keep drains clear
ELMHURST – The city issued a news release asking residents for their help during the Halloween rains.
In preparation for the rain, city crews swept all of the streets that have had flooding issues in the past to clear fallen leaves that can block street inlets or drains. City crews are also on patrol to clean inlets during the rain.
The city has been using three street sweepers constantly since the leaves began falling, but heavy rain causes additional leaf drop and washes leaves into the street drains. City crews are unable to clear all of the 7,000 street inlets during storm events, so help from residents can be very beneficial.
