Although most mosquito issues on properties are not connected to stormwater management facilities, there may be occasions where the facilities are not functioning properly.
- Most mosquito issues originate from small amounts of standing water in containers, potted plants, tarps, etc. The first step to reducing most mosquito issues is eliminating those sources of standing water. Sometimes trash left near stormwater facilities might be the source of the mosquitoes.
- If after checking and removing other potential mosquito sources, you still see large numbers of mosquitoes around a stormwater management facility, contact your city’s stormwater or public works department.
