highway department updates: LEAF PICK UP UPDATE FOR OGDEN RESIDENTS!
We appreciate your patience as our highway crews maneuver the new leaf vacuuming service. We will post a set schedule as soon as we determine the most efficient method to serve the residents of Ogden in all four quadrants. This week the highway crews began driving through the quadrants picking up piles that have been raked out to the edge of the road. Leaves that are in biodegradable bags will continue to be picked up or can be dropped off in the drop off bin located at 2432 S. Union Street. Rules for the new leaf pick up process are listed below.
*Please rake leaves to the edge of your property and NOT in the roadway.
*Please don't rake leaves into any drainage ditches as this could obstruct the flow of water. 
*Only leaves should be raked into the piles to be vacuumed. No other materials, debris, sticks, etc., should be placed into the piles as this could potentially cause damage to our equipment or harm to our employees. 
*Please don't rake leaves into drainage grates or catch basins.
*Please don't rake leaves into the gutters.
*Please don't place raked leaves into any containers such as boxes, plastic bags, barrels, cans, etc., as they will not be picked up. Leaves that are placed in biodegradable bags will still be picked up.
*Please don't place raked leaf piles behind any structures or obstacles such as trees, cars, mailboxes, fire hydrants, signs, light poles, etc.
*Leaves that are dropped off at the drop off location must be in biodegrade bags or loose. No other items can be dropped off. 

October will be the last month of brush pick up until April of 2023 unless there is a weather emergency making brush pick up necessary. 

A completed and approved fill dirt permit will now be required to ensure that the dumping of  fill in the location requested does not hinder drainage or impact neighboring properties negatively. Fill dirt permits are available in the Building Department and will require engineer approval. *Fill delivery is subject to availability and Highway Superintendent approval. 

Container/Roll-Off or Truck rental fees are now $40.00 to cover the cost of fuel and other truck and container/roll-off expenses. Forms can be found below.

STORMWATER MANAGEMENT

  • WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE A STORMWATER CONCERN- If you live in the Town of Ogden and you have a stormwater concern or complaint you should call our office at 585-617-6160. Our office wants to help in any way we can.  Please make sure to call with any questions, issues,  or concerns that you might have.

  • STORMWATER MANAGEMENT- Established in 2000, the Monroe County Stormwater Coalition is composed of 29 municipal members working together to reduce stormwater pollution. By collaborating, Coalition members are able to comply with state and federal regulations and improve water quality in a unified cost-effective manner.
  •  STORMWATER EDUCATION- Most people don't know they are living in a watershed. Every drop of precipitation that falls in Monroe County will eventually end up in a nearby waterbody. Stormwater runoff occurs when water from rain or snowmelt flows over the ground and is prevented from soaking into the ground naturally because of impervious surfaces such as driveways, sidewalks, and streets. As it flows, this water picks up debris and other pollutants that can have an adverse effect on water quality. Most suburban storm sewer systems discharge directly into the waterbodies we use for swimming, fishing, and drinking water. Polluted runoff is one of the nation's greatest threats to clean water. 
  • EFFECTS OF POLLUTION
    • Sediment picked up by runoff can impact aquatic habitats.
    • Bacteria can enter swimming areas, create health hazards, and lead to beach closures.
    • Debris washed into waterbodies can harm aquatic life such as ducks, fish, turtles, and birds.
    • Household hazardous waste such as pesticides, insecticides, paint solvents, and auto fluids can also impact aquatic life. Animals and people can them become sick from eating contaminated fish or ingesting impacted water.
    • Stormwater runoff can also impact drinking water sources. This can raise the cost of water of treatment, and can affect human health.
  • STORMWATER COALITION JOINT ANNUAL REPORT- The Coalition's Joint Annual Report includes compliance activities that were accomplished during the reporting period and performance measures to evaluate overall effectiveness of each minimum control measure. Reportable activities specific to each coalition member may be obtained from the individual municipality. The public is encouraged to review these materials and provide comments to the Coalition staff or their respective member representative.
