A serious risk to the safety of residents is the blockage of catch basins by debris which prevents proper drainage of storm water. The Town sweeps the streets on a weekly basis and monitors all catch basins after each storm event. As a resident you can help by not placing lawn cuttings or any other debris out by the curbside on the Town of Bay Harbor Islands Flood Protection Information weekend. This is a violation of Section 9-23 of the Town Code.
If you see or know of anyone illegally dumping materials/debris into any catch basins within the Town or tampering with any part of the Town’s drainage system, please contact Town Hall immediately at 305-866-6241.
