Help Keep Gutters and Storm Drains Free of Fallen Leaves

The City of Folsom Public Works Department has been busy clearing gutters and storm drain inlets of fallen leaves. When leaves accumulate on the street, it is challenging for street sweepers to pick up the leaves, which can clog storm drain inlets resulting in localized flooding. Here’s how residents can help:

  • Avoid sweeping or blowing leaves into ditches or streets.
  • Clear leaves from gutters and storm drains and place them in your green waste container, if possible.
  • Keep sidewalks clear of leaves and other debris.

If there is a storm drain inlet that is difficult to clear, or you would like to report a storm drain issue, call the Public Works Street Department at 916-461-6722.
