Can the storm drain inlet on my street be altered?

Storm drain inlets are intended to capture street drainage and maintain safe travel on streets during flooding events. The size and shape of the storm drain inlets are required to ensure that flooding does not occur. Restrictions to these openings are not permitted, as they have the potential to cause clogging or reduced capacity resulting in adverse flooding impacts to property and emergency access routes. Take appropriate precautions near these facilities. For your safety, never open, climb in or attempt to retrieve items from a storm drain inlet. To report accidental or illegal dumping down the storm drain, please call the Stormwater Hotline, 720-733-2235.
