The Wayne Public Works Department wants to remind all residents that blowing lawn mower clippings into the street is prohibited and is a violation of City Code, Section 58-94. These grass clippings and other such debris left on the street will travel to the storm sewer inlet and can block them. The blocking of inlets can cause local flooding from storm water accumulation.
Because the water from the storm sewers runs into Logan Creek, the grass clippings can negatively affect the creek with the chemical content in the grass from lawns that have been fertilized and treated with weed killer.
When mowing, please mow the first few rounds so that the grass blows in towards the lawn and when finished, sweep up the grass that has been thrown into the street.
We thank you for your cooperation.
