Does storm water cause flooding and problems; what can we do about it?

The excess runoff caused by the decrease in absorption can cause flooding, in addition, garbage picked up by these waters can also clog the drainage system, causing a slowdown in the drainage ability of the City’s system. A combination of these two events has the potential to cause flooding within the city. What could be done to help alleviate these issues is clean all leaves, grass clippings, and trash from drainage areas, manholes, and inlets to avoid¬†future flooding.
