Dealing with Drainage Complaints

With above average rainfall so far this year, many people are experiencing a greater volume of stormwater runoff than they have ever seen before. Things were especially bad when the ground was still frozen and vegetation was dormant early this year. Our office has had more drainage complaints than normal so we have been very busy. The most common urban complaints are yard flooding, sump pumps causing erosion, and streambank erosion. We can assist and help answer questions that deal with these issues, but first consider these practices that can help prevent erosion and improve drainage. Is there a drainage easement located on your property? Is it properly maintained? Do not mow in frequently
