PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT
NOTICE OF ONGOING WORK
Longmeadow is assessing the municipal drainage system to support development of a Stormwater Asset Management Program, as part of a MassDEP Grant. Personnel from the Longmeadow Department of Public Works and a hired consultant, Tighe & Bond, will be visiting stormwater structures throughout Town in December 2022 and Spring 2023. This work will occur during normal DPW hours (7:30 AM to 4:00 PM).
Our team will consist of two people wearing safety vests and carrying handheld equipment. The work will be performed primarily at outfalls (where stormwater pipes discharge to wetlands, streams, or wooded areas), catch basins, drain manholes, and culverts throughout Town.
You are not required to take any action; this notification is to keep you informed about the Town’s stormwater management efforts. If you’d like to learn more about the Town’s program and goals, visit the website: https://www.longmeadowma.gov/1130/Stormwater
Remember, when pet waste, leaves, or litter is thrown in catch basins, it can clog the drain pipes and lead to flooding, pollute our waterways, and harm the local wildlife.
