The current forecast says we could be receiving up to four inches of rain or more in the next day or two. Please check your gutters and downspouts for any clogs or debris. With this much rain on its way now is the time to be proactive to avoid flooding.
More About Drainage Systems:
Downspouts are piped underground and exit into bubble-up boxes that break the water velocity. This allows for better soil absorption and reduces runoff to waterways. Additional measures can range from a simple dry well to complex cisterns that capture the water for reuse or a Water Garden that holds the water in a bog so it can be absorbed slowly into the sub-grade.
