Safe Crossing Here

Get ready for a safe stroll because The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is implementing a new crosswalk across Gulf Boulevard and 120th Avenue. The construction started on August 16 and traffic is expected to be delayed until the project is completed.
Let Stormwater Runoff, Safely
Storm sewers and sanitary sewers are not the same. Storm sewers run along the edge of streets and parking lots, flowing directly to bodies of water. Meanwhile, sanitary sewers connect to toilets, sinks and showers and transport water to wastewater facilities. If liquids that do not belong in the stormwater drains infiltrate these sewers, the waterways become polluted. Since stormwater carries everything with it, some examples of stormwater pollution include oils, pet waste, chemical fertilizers, yard clippings, trash, etc. To minimize water pollution, try to dispose of liquids and trash properly and pay attention to drainage systems, irrigation and vegetation.
