The first case of the Zika Virus in Arizona was confirmed at the end of March this year. Monsoon season is quickly approaching which can lead to costly headaches for property’s all across the valley. Properties non-compliant with ADEQ’s 36 hour removal of water after a rain event can face hefty fines, landscape and property damage. But what does the Zika Virus have to do with any of this?
“The mosquito population in Arizona is highest during the June through September monsoon season.”
If your property isn’t draining properly, standing water becomes a breeding ground for mosquitoes who may be carriers of the fatal Zika Virus. Like any other part of your infrastructure, drywells, catch basins and other drainage systems need periodic maintenance to function at optimum levels. Over time, silt, sediment and debris build up in the system and reduce the drainage efficiency. Neglected drywells and drainage systems are at risk for damage which can result in costly repairs and or replacements of entire systems.
