Solving Drainage Problems Around Your Home
Misdirected stormwater runoff can cause major damage to property and can even lower the value of your home. Ruts and gullies, wet basements, or mud on the patio are all symptoms of bigger issues to be addressed. If you have noticed any of these symptoms in your yard, then you should try to find and resolve the causes.

To help you, the City has developed a publication, "Solving Drainage Problems Around Your Home." The document is available below in electronic format.
