Grass Clippings in Street

Iowa Falls Streets Superintendent Mike Pepper is asking the public to keep grass and yard clippings out of streets so they don't clog storm sewers.

Mowing season is in full swing, and Iowa Falls residents are being reminded to blow their grass clippings away from the street.

Iowa Falls Streets Superintendent Mike Pepper said grass clippings and other yard waste left on the street can plug the storm drains and create a blockage of the sewer system. Clogging the sewer intakes causes street flooding and can cause sewers to back up into basements.
