Hurricane season brings the obvious threats of flooding and wind damage to the coastal areas each year, with the season often extending well into fall. With flooding, there is also a substantial threat to storm drains and sewer systems with excess water. This is usually made worse if the drains and catch basins are clogged and filled with debris.
Here are some tips to help prepare for hurricane season:
- Clean any area drain covers around your property. Even one clogged area drain grating can lead to flooding.
- Make sure caps and plugs on your sewer trap are sealed correctly and tight. Immediately replace any that are old, worn or loose fitting.
- Stay on top of maintaining your drains. The best time to do this is BEFORE you anticipate any severe weather or possible flooding
