Drainage Management Program

This program utilizes an inspector who responds to citizen concerns involving drainage problems.  Typical complaints are water that ponds in swales and driveways, swales that are slow to drain, street flooding, etc.  After an initial evaluation, a survey team will establish proper elevations if corrective work is needed or if existing conditions don’t meet the City’s engineering design standards.  This team will profile and stake the project area for the City’s swale grading crew to correct the flooding problem. 

Should you notice standing water in your swale or driveway more than 72 hours  AFTER a storm event, please contact the 311 Call Center, formerly the Citizen’s Action Center, by dialing 311 or (239) 574-0425 with an exact location or address.
