Public Works will be flushing fire hydrants again, to help improve water quality and to exercise each hydrant. Remember each day after flushing is over, turn on a water faucet closest to your water meter in your basement to rinse out the waterline coming into your house. Avoid taking a shower and washing clothes during flushing times. Thank you for your cooperation!
It’s fall and trees are shedding their leaves. Leaf fall on yards is natural and provide nutrients back to the soil. Leaf fall on sidewalks and street boulevards is not. These leaves get washed down through storm drains by rains and into nearby lakes and creeks. When the excess nutrients in these leaves enters lakes, it creates algae blooms. Just 5 bags of leaves have enough phosphorus in them to create 1,000 lbs. of algae growth in lakes and creeks.
It order to help protect Benton Lake, Meuwissen Lake and the stormwater ponds throughout Cologne, you should always rake and sweep your sidewalks, driveways and street boulevards free of leaves. Leaves on your yard can be mulched with a lawnmower or raked and bagged and taken to the city’s compost site. Keeping leaves from going into stormdrains will help prevent algae blooms in our lakes, rivers, and ponds.
