It took a while, but temperatures have dropped, and the leaves are following suit. If these leaves happen to fall near storm drains, it's best to clear them away to prevent stresses to our water treatment system. But if falling on turf or soil, leaves often serve a beneficial role to the ecosystem in which they fall. So consider whether it may be sensible for you to "leave the leaves" this fall :)
Please also leave us a response [for us to "leaf through"] in our 2nd annual Preparedness Survey! Your feedback will help inform our focal topics in 2023, so we want to hear from you whether you've started one of these projects, or completed over half of them. THANK YOU!!!
