    New gutters add value, curb appeal and protection for this Olympia property.New gutters add value, curb appeal and protection for this Olympia property.Gutters are not exactly the most glamorous home improvement project, but they are one of the most practical upgrades you can do to maintain the value of your home.

    Gutters in a rainy climate are not just recommended -- they are a necessity. Not only will they keep water from pouring down off of your roof on to you, they will also protect your home from potential water damage.

Most people don't givethese much thought until they accidentally drop their keys in one. It's important to understand how storm drains function and why it's so important that you help maintain the ones in your neighborhood.

    The purpose of storm drains is to collect run-off water from irrigation and rain and carry it away underground. This prevents street flooding and hazardous driving conditions.

    It's critical to understand that storm drains do not lead to waste treatment plants like sewers do. They carry water directly to bodies of water. In the Olympia area, storm drains empty directly into Puget Sound. Please keep this in mind and never empty other liquids into them. Storm
