City Engineer's Office: Grass Clipping Violations

The City Engineer's Office is reminding residents to blow or sweep grass clippings towards properties and not onto city streets.

Grass clippings can get into storm sewers and cause clogs that prevent surface waters from draining properly. Clippings can also create a hazard to motorists, especially motorcycles, by reducing surface traction.

Leaving them on the street is a violation per the Evansville Municipal Code and is subject to fines.

To report, please contact Storm Water Coordinator Karan Barnhill at kbarnhill@evansville.in.gov or call 812-436-4977.
