I have a question about what you can put down a storm drain..are you allowed to rake leaves and tree debris down ? I thought this was a no no due to clogging the drain and causing flooding..but I might be wrong ..anyone know?

If you want to see what improper/non-existant storm drain maintenance can cost, total up slab repair and sinkhole filling on I-285 on the west side. Guarantee it'll curl your drawers. The vast majority of those costs are due to this.
That being said, blowing stuff into storm drains is first day training for most landscapers.
