After a dry 2021 and less than normal snow moisture so far, the Coon Creek Watershed District reports that the local ditch systems, stormwater ponds and wetlands have good capacity for holding spring snowmelt. This is the same as last year and perhaps is one benefit of our drought conditions. Still, with more winter weather yet to come, please remember that ditch capacity for holding floodwaters can change.
To be safe and reduce property damage from future flooding, keep sheds, equipment, landscape materials, and piles of debris out of low areas year-round. This includes piles of grass clippings or leaves. Also, if you plan to landscape or build on your property this year, find out if your activity might cause flooding or other impacts. Check with the City and your watershed organization. Don’t know which watershed? Go to CoonCreekWD.org, learn & explore landing page, then select “Are You in Our District?” Type in your address to find your watershed organization's contact information.
