Flooding Concerns

Anytime there is an abundance of rainfall, there is potential for varying degrees of flooding. Many people are faced with flooding issues and concerns with a variety of causes and, as frustrating as it can be, the property owner is responsible to resolve the matters. 

A valuable resource to assist you with additional information is Summit Soil and Water Conservation District (Summit SWCD). Click to visit their web page or call 330-929-2871.    


Catch Basins and Storm Drains

Never mow, blow or rake grass clippings or yard waste from your property into the street. This will clog drains and cause flooding. If you notice a storm drain or catch basin clogged, blocked or not functioning properly, please report this to the city at once.  Use the forms link below or call City Hall at 330-688-7491.

Ditches

Ditches are a part of your property and are homeowners' responsibility to maintain to keep water flowing freely. 

Some residents have expressed interested in enclosing the ditch on their property. Ditch enclosure may only be performed where approved by the City of Munroe Falls and with a Right of Way permit and inspection. Click here for specifications.

Driveway Culvert Pipes

The pipe that runs under the end of your driveway (if you have one), under the apron/approach is called a "driveway culvert pipe". This is also the property owners' responsibility to maintain and to replace if needed. You or your contractor will need to contact the City of Munroe Falls for a Right of Way Permit before replacing the pipe to ensure you have the proper size and backfill to keep storm water moving.
