With A Storm Approaching The Department of Environmental Protection Urges Residents to Help Minimize Street Flooding

Call 311 for Fastest Service

The New York City Department of Environmental Protection urged New Yorkers to help prepare for the tropical depression that could hit the City today by clearing leaves and debris from around catch basins.

Residents should also check the gutter in front of their homes and clear away any obstructions that may block the flow of water down the street.

The DEP also advises New Yorkers who are affected by flooding to call the City’s 24-hour Help Line at 311. This is the fastest way to get assistance from the City.
