The Village of Orland Park has had a program for many years called Adopt-A-Fire Hydrant
. The program asks residents who have a fire hydrant near their home to keep it clear of snow and unobstructed.
This year the Public Works Department is asking residents to Adopt-An-Inlet. This program will ask residents who may have a street or rear-yard stormwater inlet to make sure they also are cleaned off and unobstructed.
Many of our street and backyard flooding calls are directly related to stormwater inlets becoming covered with leaves, grass, and debris. Once the debris is cleared the inlets can drain properly. If you have an inlet anywhere near your home please be a good neighbor and keep it clear.
