Drainage System Maintenance
A community can lose a portion of its drainage system carrying or storage capacity due to dumping, debris, soil erosion and sedimentation, and overgrowth of vegetation. When this happens, flooding occurs more frequently and reaches higher elevations, subjecting properties otherwise protected to unnecessary risk of damage. Keep grass clippings and other debris out of stormwater drainage systems to prevent clogging and loss of stormwater storage and treatment capacity.
If you experience or are aware of any localized drainage problems, including illegal stream dumping, please notify the Osceola County Public Works Department at (407) 742-0662 so that the problem can be corrected.
