IS THERE A TIMELINE OR DEADLINE TO PROTECT MY PROPERTY?

There is not an "official" deadline before the City takes action against home or business owners who do not adequately protect their property from high water levels. However, failure to provide adequate protection may result in flooding. If a breach affects neighboring property or goes out into the street, the City will take corrective action and bill the responsible property owner(s)/.

The City strongly advises residents to take into account the forecast levels and build an adequate sandbag barrier before high water occurs. It is much easier to install the barrier on dry ground.
