Homeowners are reminded to:
· Maintain ditches, including roadside ditches, by mowing to 8 inches or less and keeping them free of fill and other debris.
· Work with neighbors to clear brush, debris and other blockages from neighborhood creeks and ditches.
· Keep storm inlet grates clear of debris, trash and leaves.
· Make sure driveway culverts are free of debris, in good repair and set to proper elevation so that water does not back up.
