Storm sewers in Llangollen empty into the river.  Some empty into above ground drainage ditches that run through residents' back yards before entering the river.  Please refrain from depositing trash (cans, bottles, paper, dog feces, etc.) into storm sewers to keep our river clean, prevent flooding, and as a courtesy to residents who must constantly clean trash from the drainage ditch that runs through their property. 

I agree, I have a storm drain in front of my home and when the rains are heavy any trash that is left in the street gets washed to the drain and clogs it.  I go out an clean it everytime.  I know it is most likely the kids that throw there waste in the street or even out the window or their car, I have seen this.  But how does this even get addressed?
