Adopt-A-Drain Program

Printer-friendly version

Can 1 person help the city during these storms? 

Of course!  With nearly 500 catch basins to keep clean, city crews are stretched pretty thin during the first few rains storms that include heavy rains.  Keeping the inlet of the catch basin in the street near your house will keep the water moving and help prevent flooding. 


A storm drain covered with debris from the storm.


60 seconds of work later!

There's no need to dispose of the debris, just move it to the sidewalk or street and DPW will pick it up as soon as they can.

If you are interested in "officially" adopting the storm drains nearest your home, please click here for more information.

Sand Bags Available

One can never be too prepared!  Sand bags are now available atop two palettes outside the gate of the Public Works Corp Yard, located at the intersection of Tunnel Ave. and Lagoon Rd.  Each sand bag weighs approximately 15 lbs. and are free for the taking.  So please stop by and pick up the amount you need...more will be made by the Public Works crew as necessary to ensure the community has what it needs to guard against flooding during the rainy season.  And, the below pics illustrate how Dolan, Joe, and Keegan from the PW crew got sand bag-making down to a simple, easy process -- with the help of some safety cones acting as pastry bags.  Now, that's creative.  Good work, guys!

 

Donny McClymond

We at the City of Brisbane are deeply saddened over the loss of one of our hard-working Public Works crew members over the Thanksgiving Holiday.  Donny passed away unexpectedly on Thanksgiving Day, having put in over 25 years of service to the City on the Operations and Maintenance Team, and recently serving as Public Works Team Leader.

He obviously leaves us entirely too early, at the young age of 53.  Flags at the Public Works Corporation Yard, City Hall, and Fire Station will be flown at half-mast until his funeral.  Information on services and arrangements will be posted as soon as they are made known to us.

Donny, your kind spirit, hearty laugh, and regularly-spoken parting sentiment, "Enjoy your day", are already missed so much.  We will never forget you.
