Drainage System Maintenance
Several of the City's efforts to prevent flood damage depend on the cooperation and assistance of Seminole residents. One way that citizens can help is to refrain from dumping or throwing anything into the ditches, ponds, streams and Lake Seminole . [Dumping in these areas is a violation of City Code Section 18-32(1).] Such items as grass clippings and pieces of trash may plug channels and contribute to flooding. Floodplains kept free of debris can provide additional storage areas for flood waters, thus further protecting homeowner's property.
f your property is next to a ditch or stream, please keep the banks clear of brush and debris. In unique circumstances, the City can help you remove major blockages such as downed trees. If you see debris in the waterways, or see others dumping waste in these areas, please contact the Community Development Department at 727-398-3108, ext. 106.
