How can I protect city storm drains?

Leaves and debris should never be placed in or near a storm drain, since rain events can cause debris to wash into the drain, clogging it and contributing to flooding. Additionally, chemicals should never be poured or rinsed into a storm drain. Remember "Drains to Lake". Whatever goes in our storm drains, eventually ends up in the lakes.
