Maintaining drainage systems one of most important steps for hurricane season

Standing water is always an issue but especially during hurricane season. The more it rains, the more debris clogs up the ditches. The more clogged ditches there are, the more it floods.

And with all the rain we’re getting as the hurricane gets underway, people say they’re concerned over what will happen when the water doesn’t have anywhere to go.

The storm team from Lee County’s Department of Transportation is trying its best to avoid those clogged ditches and standing water. Cape Coral and other local municipalities are doing their part to clear the canals and ditches as well.
