                                                              Why do some yards flood after large quantities of rain? The simple answer is according to most
                                                            approved drainage designs, some water is meant to be temporarily stored in public recreational
                                                            areas, yard swale and streets. The excess surface water slowly drains to community lakes or on-
                                                            site ponds via street and yard drainage grates and/or via swales, ditches and canals. The more
                                                            complex answer is that each yard is different. Some yards have drainage swale areas. These
                                                            are areas that are sloped to catch water and filter out pollutants as water is absorbed into the
                                                            ground. Some yards direct water to the community drainage system as run-off with very little
                                                            water retained in the yard. Familiarize yourself with how your yard was built to determine how
                                                            water drains from your home.
