Leaf Cleanup is underway!
The purpose of the leaf cleanup program is to remove leaves from the roadways and gutters so that they do not impede the flow of storm water, causing flooding or property damage. Vacuum trucks and sweepers are used in this process. Major waterways and storm sewers are given priority and receive as much attention as needed. It is necessary to clean some areas multiple times while some areas are only cleaned once.
As the vacuum trucks clean the gutters they will vacuum up loose leaves that have been raked into a pile or "windrow" along the edge of the gutter.
