Rising Spotlight: Storm Water Services Talk Flood Preparedness

Florence is a huge example that flooding can happen quickly.

It’s Mecklenburg County’s most expensive and most common natural disaster.

John Wendel with Storm Water Services stopped by Rising to talk about how to prepare for floods.

Wendel also discussed water mapping, flood insurance and the impact of green ways on where people live.

Crews with Storm Water Services will begin water restoration and damage repair tomorrow, but folks at home can get the ball rolling by clearing out storm drains in front of their homes.
