What can I do to reduce flooding?

Make sure there is nothing in or near ditches or pipes that can block drainage. To help yourself and your neighbors, keep your ditches clean of leaves and other debris. If a big storm is coming, check to make sure nothing is blocking drainage. Loose items can wash into drainage ways so make sure items are put away.
