Drainage District 6 clear debris from ditches ahead of storms
As rainfall piles up in Southeast Texas, Drainage District 6 is using a tracking system to monitor precipitation and how quickly ditches fill.
A crew is sent out to remove debris from ditches and culverts in the area to make sure the water is free flowing.
Pitchforks are used to unclog the culverts and remove debris, allowing for better drainage in severe weather conditions.
Those living near ditches can help by making sure there is no loose debris by the gutters or piled up on the roadway.
