What can I do to prepare for flood risk?

All residents can take action to prepare their homes for extra moisture, whether in spring storms, high groundwater, or flooding.

Some of those actions include 

  • Checking rain downspouts to ensure they point away from your home and away from window wells
  • Placing your garbage can further from the curb on garbage day to allow water to flow freely down the street
  • Ensuring your landscaping is sloped away from your home and window wells
  • Clearing storm drain inlets around homes
  • Protecting your property by having flood insurance
