It is always a good idea to check your swales, culverts, water bars and other stormwater devices to make sure they’ll work properly during heavy rains.
CBCC put together this guide to maintaining your road’s stormwater “BMPs” (Best Management Practices). Now is the time for you and your neighbors to re-establish a regular maintenance plan.
