RainReady Community helps neighborhoods manage flooding and drought. With a current focus on flooding, they offer support in making practical and affordable neighborhood improvements that help communities address:

  • Water or sewage backup in your home
  • Seepage or moisture in your basement
  • Flooding or standing water in your yard or street
  • Cracked or blocked private sewer pipes
  • Overland flooding from a creek or ditch

This approach prioritizes strategies that bring multiple benefits to the community.
