“With so many residents new to Cape Coral, we want to remind people that roadside ditches and swales may hold water for some time during significant rain events; however, they are designed to drain,” the release states. “Residents are encouraged to check for debris and obstructions around their properties, including driveway culverts and neighborhood ditches. Private communities should inspect their internal drainage systems’ outfalls and grates.”
“City and County staff are ready to monitor and adjust as necessary throughout the anticipated storm event,” officials said.
