April Showers: Flood Protection Assistance

To protect your property from flood damage:

 Demolish the building or relocate it out of harm’s way.  

  • Elevate the building above the flood level. 
  • Elevate damage– prone components, such as the furnace or air conditioning unit.  
  • Dry floodproof the building so water cannot get into it.  
  • Wet floodproof portions of the building so water won’t cause damage.  
  • Construct a berm or redirect drainage away from the building.  
  • Maintain nearby streams, ditches, and storm drains so debris does not obstruct them.  
  • Correct sewer backup problems.
