Flood Control is A Shared Responsibility

altYour neighborhood drainage system is not a garbage disposal — please don’t treat it like one. Encourage residents to take responsibility by keeping ditches, swales, drainage grates, and retention lakes clear of debris, trash, and other discarded material in and around inlets or pipes.

Discourage the disposal of lawn clippings, tree limbs, and other debris (wood, concrete blocks, Christmas trees, etc.) directly into swales, street drains, and drainage canals.

Keep drainage facilities clear of vegetation, trash, improperly and illegally discarded appliances, furniture, shopping carts, tires, cars, garbage bags, etc. Report the location and condition of any clogged or damaged facilities to the proper authority in ADVANCE of and DURING the summer rainy season.

WE ALL BENEFIT when flood protection is maximized and the community works together.

For questions about flood control and stormwater runoff, feel free to call the SFCD at 561-996-2940, or the City of Belle Glade Stormwater Division at 561-996-0100. Your Tax Notice will show which taxing authority is responsible for stormwater runoff, however, it is a team effort.

Thank you,

South Florida Conservancy District
