Join us Tuesday, October 30 at 10 a.m. at The Landings Association's Administrative Building (600 Landings Way South) for a Stormwater Pollution Seminar and Stewardship Program.

Heavy rainfall can create stormwater, which runs off the land, picking up pollutants like plastics as well as lawn clippings and fertilizers. These pollutants are carried down the storm drain to the nearest waterway and can harm fish and other aquatic life. Marking these storm drains is a way to remind everyone that only water should go down the drain.

The Landings community fared well overall from the effects of Hurricane Michael. Some of our weather station project sites showed that the forecasts for sustained winds peaking around 37 mph with gusts up to 50 mph were fairly accurate. There were about six, downed trees around the island and lots of debris including small branches, heavy leaf/pine straw litter, Spanish Moss, etc. along the roadways.

Landings Association Preps for Storm

In anticipation of the heavy rain and winds that Hurricane Michael is expected to bring to Savannah and the surrounding area, The Landings Association’s Public Works Department has begun to circulate the community to remove any dangerous trees/limbs located on common property. Staff also are evaluating storm drains and removing any debris to ensure that our storm drain system is functioning properly.
