The City of Hood River Public Works maintenance crew began cleaning catch basins in the downtown area Sunday and will continue through Thursday, Dec. 6, between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. The city’s combination sewer truck will be used to run high-pressure water to clean the lines and then vacuum out the debris.
The city will make every effort to minimize the time it spends in any location and apologizes for any noise issues this work may cause.
The City of Hood River would like to remind its citizens that it is the property owner’s responsibility to keep the sidewalks adjoining a property in a safe condition. If there are leaves on the sidewalk, please remove them. Owners are liable for all damages resulting from unsafe sidewalks adjacent to their property.
Residents are reminded that leaves must not be raked into the gutter as they can plug the storm drains and cause flooding. This is a violation of the Hood River Municipal Code.
If there are catch basins by your property, the city asks that you help keep them clear of leaves and debris. This will help keep all the water draining and keep it from flooding the streets. The City Public Works Department would like to thank the citizens of Hood River for their help in keeping our city clean and safe.
