Flooding in Tempe?

6/21/2021 (Permalink)

A storm drain is shown emptying flood water into a drainage area. We are trusted leaders in emergency storm damage mitigation in Maricopa County.

Flood Preparedness Tips 

The City of Tempe’s website has a whole section on floodplain management and is enforcing floodplain management ordinances to reduce future flood damage. SERVPRO® of North Tempe and SERVPRO® of Mesa East has a team of storm mitigation technicians on-call 24-hours a day to respond to flood damage emergencies in Tempe. Here are some tips from the City of Tempe to prepare your home and streets for a flood: 

Prepare Your Home 

  • Trim trees so they are away from windows and roofs 
  • Clear debris from your roof drainage system, including gutters and downspouts 
  • Pre-treat pools with a chlorine shock to help prevent algae growth. 
  • Do not apply fertilizers or other outdoor chemicals before expected storms 
  • Secure loose items on your property, such as patio and pool furniture 
  • Unplug expensive electronics (TV, stereo, home entertainment centers, and computers) and/or install power protection devices 

Keep Storm Drains Clear of Debris 

The flooding of streets, sidewalks, and homes can be much worse if the city's storm drains are blocked by debris. This can be prevented by disposing of yard waste in trash receptacles. If excessive amounts of debris are collecting near a storm drain, call 480-350-4311.
