Cleanup from last Thursday's storm will take about three more weeks to complete, according to Wichita Public Works and Utilities officials.

During a briefing Tuesday morning, city officials provided an update on cleanup efforts taking place around the city. City crews have been going through impacted areas, picking up broken tree limbs and other storm debris in public areas.

There are at least 18 crews, with as many as 5 people in a crew, working Monday through Friday on cleanup. According to Public Works, all city streets are now passable but clearing and hauling away limbs will take three more weeks. Crews will also be cutting hanging limbs to minimize the risk of falling branches. Progress of the city crews can be tracked on a map, viewable at wichita.gov.

The city wants to remind residents that no limbs or other debris will be picked up on private property. In those cases, pick will need to be worked out with a waste hauler, or debris can be taken to one of the disposal sites listed below. Normal fees would apply.
