Officials: Don't dump debris, snow into creeks

The Oneonta city engineering department warns residents that it is unlawful to dump leaves, snow or other debris into any of the city’s creeks or the Susquehanna River.

Piles of debris and snow could cause blockages in the waterways, which could result in local flooding, officials said in a media release. Waterways included in the precautionary notice include Silver Creek, Oneonta Creek, Glenwood Creek and the Mill Race.

City officials also urged residents monitor catch basins in neighborhoods to prevent leaves from blocking them.
