Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner’s Office
ANN ARBOR, MI.: Water Resources Commissioner Pratt reports that all field staff are working throughout the County on various drainage concerns and reports of flooding. Responses are prioritized based on critical criteria such as safety, public health concerns, imminent damage, and impassable road conditions.
Eastern Washtenaw received unusually heavy rains last night, with some areas receiving between 4.8” - 4.9" in roughly 3 hours. NOAA calls this a "500-year, 3-hour storm", which means a 0.2% of happening at any given time. With more rain in the forecast for today residents are encouraged to continue reporting drainage issues. Providing pictures may help redirect staff to the areas that require immediate attention.
Report concerns by:
After-hour emergencies should be reported by calling 911.
Your continued patience while we respond is greatly appreciated.
Our Mission: We seek to inspire the residents and communities of Washtenaw County to protect surface water and the environment while maintaining necessary drainage. Within the authority granted to our office, we provide resources to reduce flooding, dispose of home toxics, and improve water quality.
