It looks like spring has arrived early so the Long Creek Watershed Management District is excited to start the spring cleanup now.
Our pavement sweeping contractor, Maritime Farms and Land Management, LLC will begin sweeping roadways and parking lots on March 10th. The contractor will work overnight or very early in the day to minimize interference with your tenants, customers, patients, and visitors.
As a reminder to help prepare for the spring sweeping, please ask your winter maintenance personnel to check that your snow dumps are reasonably free of large debris, examples include concrete curbing, broken asphalt, and general refuse. Cleaning up large debris can take an excessive amount of time for our contractor, resulting in delays and potentially impacting other Participating Landowners from receiving their spring sweep in a timely manner.
In addition, our catch basin cleaning contractor ACV Enviro / Clean Venture, Inc. will start inspecting and cleaning approximately 800 catch basins and drain manholes in the watershed very soon. The contractor will also begin work very early in the day and will focus on working close to buildings to minimize interference with your tenants, customers, patients, and visitors.
Our sweeping and catch basin cleaning programs help to remove sand, salt, grit, trash and other debris from paved areas and catch basins. They are an important part of the pollution prevention activities that LCWMD manages to maintain and improve the water quality of the creek!
