The City of Grovetown’s Public Works Department has been working to clean storm ditches, storm drain basins, and so on in preparation for the effects of Hurricane Florence. We are asking Citizens to remove any property away from the curbs and sides of streets - bulk waste, yard debris, grass clippings, and so on. Please do not put out any debris that may cause the clogging of storm drain inlets and/or storm drain pipes that could lead to localized flooding.
