The Town of Big Flats has 14 large drainage swales, and 13 retention basins within the town. The swales and basins are mowed 2 times a year with the help of The Chemung County Soil & Water District. We monitor and perform maintenance as needed.  The Town also has numerous catch basins and drywells throughout the town.  We clean basins on an annual basis.  Please do not dispose of yard debris in drainage swales or creeks.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the DPW office.   (607)562-8443 Ext224,  DPW@BigFlatsny.gov
