i don't think it's that simple.....

but good to hear about your car not getting water into it.

i would still take it to a mechanic shop and make sure you didn't get any water mixed in with your oil. or if you are mechanically inclined, or know someone that is......check both the dipsticks and make sure the oil isn't cloudy/milky. also make sure your air filter is not soaked with water before you drive it.

I wish civil engineering was that easy, but on the real. Most streets that flood here in Houston are due to 2 things:
1. Storm sewer inlets and pipe sizes that were built pre 1980 we underdesigned by todays standards seeing that like 70-80% of Houston is impervious (meaning concrete, structures, etc that don't allow rain to penetrate) and it was not quite that way in the 60's and 70's.
2. Too many people blowing there grass clippings down the inlet instead of putting it in a trash can. Also construction sites do a poor job of keeping run-off on-site and it eventually makes it's way into a storm sewer.

When you get a rainfall that is super severe and comes down heavily for long periods of time, you will normally get flooding no matter what, but it generally recedes quickly 9 times out of 10. Okay, enough of my nerd talk.:icon_bigg

There's a third factor D....and it's design. Flood control, many of the newer neighborhoods are designed using the streets as part of flood control.

Couple this with some of the developers doing cheap crud, that impacts older neighborhoods downstream. Cheating/playing dirty with the code in regards to retention ponds/drains, raising the ground level of the development are thinigs we have seen with some of the new developments in/near spring.

It's called ponding limits when the design is to "pond" in the streets, generally with less than 1 foot of depth. Cheap, I don't know about that seeing that Flood Control regulates what the design standards/criteria are to be followed. Poor maintenance of detention (not retention) ponds probably has a lot do with it as well as most detention ponds are suppose to hold water back and slowly release water into the "mainstreams" or large storm sewer systems. Poor maintenance (i.e. cutting the grass in the ponds, pilot channels, and trash in the trash racks) plays a huge role as well one would think. But yeah, most people aren't aware that storm sewer systems can be designed to allow ponding in the streets, thus thinking it is flooding when it is actually "ponding".

You're in Texas City, where do you expect them to drain the water to? We're only about 6" above sea level... I'm ready to rename the parking lot "Lake BP" because its flooded.

'ponding' or maybe 'lakeing' would be more appropiate... As per the 'flood control' their job is to make sure that the water flows downthe bayous etc.

The county inspectors are responsible for making sure that the new construction meets code and that they don't do things 'extra'. That's where the joke starts though, a large (very large) are maybe inspected once during early phase.
I used the term 'cheap' as not doing a quality job...or considering only getting their money and not giving thought to impact of what they are doing.
One local, new 'neighborhood' is divided down the middle by a bayou. They built a retention pond alright, by code to account for the alloted size of the neighborhood... however this means one side if ok and fine and doesn't impact all that much down stream... the other side however, all drains directly into the bayou. Now the lost surface for absorbtion doesn't affect the folx in the neighborhood too much...maybe a tad more for the side w/o the retention pond. The older neighborhoods downstream of the bayou on the other hand.

Historicly speaking, from 1969-1988 there were 2 incidents in which me driveway was under water. From 1995 to present, the water has flooded the drainage ditches and covered the road/driveway 7 times.


p.s. Don't mean to argue Buck... just passing on what
the Flood Control guy and County man told us when we had a
neighborhood meeting in regards to the increased flooding along Lemm Gully & Spring Creek.
p.p.s. For those curious, the 'county' solution for the homes that
continue to flood...condem them.
