Fort Wayne City Utilities requests residents' aid in clearing storm drains

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 - 4:45 pm

When temperatures begin to climb again, all of the accumulated snow and ice in Fort Wayne will begin to melt -- and City Utilities is requesting assistance from residents the water has somewhere to go.

Via a news release, the department reminds residents that storm drains can be blocked by ice dams and debris near the inlets, and requests that individuals help prevent street flooding by removing those kinds of impediments.
