The maintenance of outfall ditches is most important to help promote good drainage of roadside ditches, which can eliminate flooding and road base failure to City streets. Outfall ditch maintenance also helps eliminate where mosquitoes breed. So please remember if property has a drainage easement on it, City Code prohibits placing obstructions within the easement. When the mosquito count indicates we have a problem, City streets are sprayed using two trucks equipped with ULV sprayers. The mosquito count information is also furnished to Langley Air Force Base to help promote aerial spray flights.
Attention Bee Keepers
Poquoson residents who keep honey bees as a business or hobby and would like to be notified when aerial spray flights occur, please call Public Works at 757-868-3590.
