Snow in SF? Perhaps - but definitely rain!

Rain (or snow) is on its way right in time for the weekend to get cozy and stay in.

Get ready for the wet weather and remove debris away from catch basins - you will help minimize flooding in your area.

You don't want anything like this catch basin in your neighborhood - do you?

If you see clogged catch basins or to report street flooding, contact 311 or @311 in SF.

Stay dry and keep warm!

No more "FOG" in San Francisco's sewers!
That's FOG, as in "Fats, Oil and Grease"

Exciting news for San Francisco! On Tuesday, February 8, the Board of Supervisors approved the FOG Control Ordinance that will prevent restaurant grease from going into the sewers - and help prevent grease-clogged pipes, flooding, save the city a
lot of money. Each SF spends more than $3.5 million to respond to grease-clogged pipes.

Check out the coverage on KTVU TV!
