Step 6: Protect Natural Floodplain Functions

Colored graphic tile representing water.Did you know that it is illegal to dump anything (trash, grass clippings, leaves, etc.) in any ditch or storm sewer in the City? Dumping materials into our drains pollutes our waters and clogs our stormwater system. When storm drains and ditches are blocked or full of debris, flood waters can’t drain properly, which leads to flooding in our neighborhoods. For questions, or to report drainage obstructions or illegal dumping, call the City of St. Cloud at 407-957-7344.
