After the December 3, 2019 meeting on the Lakeview drainage issues, it became apparent that there was some confusion about the roles that ditches, sump pumps, the City, and homeowners play in keeping our homes dry. In the interest of getting everyone on the same page for future discussions, CBLCA has prepared an overview document. You can download it here.
A caveat or two: every home is a bit different and is in a slightly different place than the one next door. In other words, we can’t cover every possibility in regards to ditches and flooding and your situation may be different from others’. We can only cover generalities in this document.
