Documenting Flood Damage

August 23, 2018 2:04 PM

Documenting the damage caused by this week's floods can help the City plan for future events, and make changes to our stormwater management. If it is possible, residents can document any property damage caused by the storm. This includes taking photos, videos, etc of debris lines on your homes to show how high the water got, noting water in basements and garages or other structural damage. This is especially important in areas where the street flooded and that is how water got into the house.

Engineering is also acutely interested in noting sanitary sewer backups, areas where vehicles have stalled, roadways that are/were impassable and of course large damage such as the damage that was caused by the overflow in drainage ditchs that runs to ponds.

This information will help with planning and prioritizng needs across the city. Engineering has already planned future projects within the drainage basin, but identifying and gathering information early helps them immensely.

Information can be shared with Please include your address.
