  1. Simple solution- stop the building. All these huge homes and other buildings going up cover the soil which otherwise would absorb the rain water. I’ve been watching. A property with a house that covers about 20% of the property gets bought and then a new house or building gets built which covers about 50-75% of the property. That much less land to absorb the rain.

    • I thought of another idea:
      I noticed around town and I am sure that this problem exists in other towns as well, very close to the sewer drains in the street is lumps of wet leaves, plain simple little trash, rocks, pieces of wood, cans, little branches, construction junk and etc. and etc..
      The sewer drains are not magic , they are not Hocus Pocus, if they get stuffed, where do you think the water is going???
      Also if you are an organization and you pay someone to put up signs, please pay him double to remove the signs after that specific date.
      I would like to say thank you in advance.

  2. We live in a development and recently our basement flooded. We installed a larger drain and sump pump at the bottom of the basement steps. And cleaning the gutters often helps a lot.
    Hope this helps.
    I feel for those who flooded, it’s a real annoyance and sometimes a big expense.
