Residents Asked to Open Storm Sewer Inlets

Many of our storm sewer inlets are still filled with the snow from the recent storm. With rain forecasted in the coming days, the Village of Waunakee is asking residents to help clean out storm sewer inlets, especially in low lying areas and intersections. This will help prevent flooding and water pooling that could lead to icy streets as temperatures are due to drop after the rain.

Village crews will also be working on cleaning inlets; however, there are so many storms sewer inlets in the Village, staff may not be able to get them all before the expected rainfall. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
