Three Times the Charm – Storm Drain Marking Saturday Oct 15


From the desk of Chairman, Peter Lent:

Well folks the weather looks great for Saturday October 15 (finally) . I just had a few items to share before then.

1.      We’ll be meeting at 9:00 AM  in the parking lot behind the United Methodist Church, off Trigon Park in the Village of LeRoy. We will work until noon, or stop earlier if we have all medallions installed.

2.      We have 200 medallions to install. Hopefully we will have enough volunteers to have 3 or  4  3-person teams.

3.      Jennifer has separated the remaining Village areas into groups of streets (routes) with each group containing around 50 storm drains. With 4 teams that will mean each team will do 50 storm drains, which should be easily accomplished in 3 hours.

4.      We do not have soft brushes to clean curbs after we use the steel brushes. If you have a regular broom please  bring it. I will be bringing one. Each team should have one.

5.      Supplies that I have include, construction adhesive, safety vests, steel brushes, caulking guns.

6.      I think Lisa has the medallions, safety goggles, gloves, and maybe some other items.

7.      Nikki could you bring the buckets? I can take them after event and store them.

8.      I drove around one of  the routes ( North Street and street to east of it Genesee and Lathrop). I noticed that these have grass over the top of the curb. We will need to remove this grass to place the medallion ( a trowel of other tools may be needed and we use extra buckets to collect the grass and soil removed and dispose of later, so we don’t make a mess.

9.      I am going to try and get aerial photos for the different routes.

10.  I have a couple of clip boards I’ll bring so that teams can write down any problems they observed, e.g. drains where no curb existed to install medallion, backed up drains with standing water, or drains needing repair. We can share this info with Village Public Works. If you have some clip board bring them.

Let me know if there are any questions or suggestions.
