Investigate the stormwater management of your neighborhood

Investigate the stormwater management of your
neighborhood
• Each urbanized area has a stormwater system.
• Identify downspouts of your home (or surrounding homes), the topography of your
area (what direction would water go), catch basins (drains in the street curbs), and
where this water would eventually drain (existing body of water – streams, rivers,
lakes, other drainage basins).

Use the FEMA Flood Hazard Mapping tool to help you. https://msc.fema.gov/portal/search

• Take pictures of nearby storm water inlets. Describe the condition of the inlet and
surrounding infrastructure (streets, curbs, sidewalks). Do you see any potential
problems for storm drainage?
