Protect Your Homes from Potential Flooding
Protect Your Home or Business from Potential Flooding
With the prospect of very heavy rain this weekend you are advised that overland flooding and surcharged drainage and sewer systems are possible. People should ensure that they take advance precautions against flooding and backups. To the extent possible, valuables should be removed from basements that are subject to flooding. People should not enter basements where flooding has occurred, due to both gas and electrical hazards, but rather should seek Fire Department assistance in mitigating the hazard.
The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection website offers tips and resources for clean up efforts.
For more storm information and resources, please visit the City's Hurricane Irene Advisory and Preparedness Tips.
