I see standing water in a drainage easement next to my property. What should I do?
If the water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes, please contact the owner of the property, which is frequently a homeowners' association. The owner is responsible for maintaining drainage easements, detention or retention areas. The water is not a breeding ground when one or more of the following is evident:
  1. The water is flowing.
  2. Fish are present.
  3. The water dries up within 72 hours of a rainfall.

If you have questions, please contact Health & Food Safety.
