Turn Around, Don't Drown!

Please use caution during periods of heavy rainfall. Water can quickly accumulate in areas with poor drainage, especially during flash flooding occurrences. Motorists are encouraged to NEVER drive through flooded roadways, as you never know what the depth or speed of the water is. Additionally, road beds may be washed out under flood waters. Be safe and don’t take the risk. Turn around, don’t drown!

There are approximately 4,000 acres of regulatory floodplains in our community. All development within the floodplain requires a permit. If you have any questions about floodplain requirements, flood insurance, stormwater issues, to find out if you are within a floodplain or to request a site visit, please contact please contact Director of Community Development, Mike Zeek, at mzeek@marylandheights.com or (314) 291-6550.
