“Outstanding service. They were extremely careful delivering the extra large container into our driveway.” -- A. L. GARNER
Edmond and Oklahoma City. During a flood or heavy rain, the cities' stormwater systems collect the trash before flushing it into Arcadia Lake. Nicole Offutt, Edmond's administrative supervisor for Arcadia Lake, said trash is a constant problem because the lake's drainage basin is so large. The water is tested regularly for contaminants like runoff from yards, Offutt said, so while unsightly, the trash doesn't make the water unsafe to drink. Offutt has fewer than 10 people on staff to collect trash that washes up on the lake's shores after the water level returns to normal, but the workers target the developed areas of the lake that draw more people.
