James Island received a record rainfall of 6 inches in a short time frame yesterday evening during high tide. Town staff has already been out assessing areas that have drained properly and poorly. The Town, in conjunction with SCDOT, Charleston County and the City of Charleston have been working to rehabilitate the drainage systems in many of the older neighborhoods and cleaning out drainage systems in the “hot spot” areas where debris normally accumulates. Please remember, especially during Spring storm season as residents are doing more yardwork, to never put yard debris in the drainage ditches.
Reminder that drainage work order requests can be put in at http://www.jamesislandsc.us/work-order-request and staff will look into the issue and respond accordingly.
