Clear Ice/Snow from Storm Drains, Gutters and Sump Pumps

Share this post

Stormwater concerns are rising in Merrillville as the snow melts. Merrillville Stormwater Utility Executive Director Matthew Lake says the town's Public Works Department continues to clear snow to uncover storm drains and they are asking homeowners to clear storm drains in their yards as well as uncovering ice and snow from your sump pump drains if they are day lighting into your yard so it can drain and pump the water out.
Lake also recommends clearing out your gutters and downspout extensions to make sure those are uncovered and clear of ice and snow. Lake says with stock piles of snow and the frozen ground, there will be ponding and pooling of water where you normally do not have that occurring.
