Flood Mitigation and Preparedness Tips
How to Prepare for a Flood (PDF)
1. Maintain the natural drainage on your property by cleaning culverts and removing debris from ditches and low lying areas. Clean culverts under driveways, because they are on private property and cannot be cleaned by county crews.
2. Keep sandbags and sand on hand if you are in a flood prone area. Plywood and plastic sheeting also work to protect property from flooding.
