Drainage System Maintenance

As simple as it may sound, simply keeping smaller ditches and streams free of debris can dramatically improve the run-off capacity of low-lying areas, as well as greatly reduce the occurrence blockage that significantly contributes to flooding. Do not throw leaves or brush in creeks as they can cause problems downstream by blocking culverts and pipes and restricting the flow of water.
