Thanks for asking, Texbuck. The Woodlands and the engineers have really been on it, lately, and it is less than it was. We have had this for 2 years. The drain had a problem and about 5 of our houses could not get in or out of our driveways. Too much water is coming from too many directions. But, they are working on the problem. We are lower than the other homes in the neighborhood.
You and your neighbors keep after them to remedy the problem, they have not been able to resolve similar problems in the city of Houston, Cypress, etc. and they have had the problem for years!
I hope you have flood insurance just in case !!
We are on it and the The Woodlands came out at 6:30 am to look at the problem on one of the really bad rainy days. I don't think this retention pond thing is the greatest idea. Our drain is supposed to go into the little lake across the Creekside Green and into the pond or little lake. It is not going like it should. We do have flood insurance, but, my agent at State Farm told me that if it is caused by the drain, it won't be covered. So, I have been after them to answer who will pay for this if they don't fix the drainage. So far, no one is able to tell me that. At least, they are working on it now. It took two years of complaining to see action.
I'm all rain rain go away now....I've seen Noah's Ark three times this week. He was a friendly guy and all but I really wanted to go to the book store and other places! The yard is all muddy and is getting torn up just by walking through it!
I am definitely looking forward to leaving the house with 2 kids. I had to find ways to entertain them inside and it included setting up a kiddie pool in my play room with ball pit balls in it! The dog enjoyed it too!
