Town departments are planning for the pending nor’easter, which is predicted to bring heavy rains and high winds to the region. Public works crews have been out since Sunday clearing roads and catch basins of debris. Please check around your own home to ensure that catch basins are free of leaves and other items to help prevent road flooding. Parks and Forestry workers will be out clearing any trees or heavy limbs in the roadways. If a tree has fallen across the road, please call 911 and the Needham Police Department will secure the scene and notify DPW.
If you encounter downed wires, please do not go near them. Instead call Eversource at (800) 592-2000.
If you are prone to flooding in your home and have a sump pump or other mitigation system, DPW recommends inspecting that system to ensure it is operational during the event.
DPW will continue to inspect areas of frequent flooding and address issues as they arise.
For all other issues, please make a report via SeeClickFix.
