Flood Services


Flooding is a temporary overflow of water onto land that is normally dry, and considered to be one of the most common disasters in the United States. Flooding can happen anytime, anywhere.  You do not have to live in a flood hazard area to be flooded.  Flooding can happen anywhere, even far from water.  In fact, towns, cities, and their suburbs have hidden flood risk that can put your home of business in danger.  Changing weather patterns, new development, small streams, and limited drainage can turn a heavy rain into a flash flood in minutes.

Education and prevention are valuable and proven tools that help communities become resistant to these natural disasters. To view the full flood protection guide, please see here.

For technical assistance:

If needed, a representative from the City can make a site visit to your home or property to review and make recommendations for any flooding, drainage and sewer problems you may be having. You can contact the Public Works Department at 601-853-2027 to request a visit.
