Spring has arrived and with it come the spring rains and spring cleanup. If you want the rains to drain away efficiently, please refrain from allowing your spring cleanup efforts to include placement of leaves, sticks and other debris in the nearest ditch. The roadside ditches and County Drains are there to serve a drainage purpose and not to act as a source for debris disposal. It is quite expensive to remove sediment and debris from the ditches. Please don’t add to the problem.
