White Township’s Road Department monitors specific street intersections and low-lying areas during storms where flooding is known to occur. Prior to significant rainfall events, the Township dispatches crews to clear stormwater inlets and make sure pipes are open and can receive rainwater. Some storms move so much water that sediment, trees, and debris block stream channels. When this happens, the Township hires dredging contractors to remove sand and other material near culverts and bridges. This helps to prevent stormwater from backing up onto streets and private property during the next storm.
