Property Managers are some of the hardest working people in the community/property management industry. In addition to day-to-day responsibilities they are also required to keep their properties up to date on preventative and regular maintenance. We don’t expect them to know it all when it comes to things like Stormwater, drywells, and the drainage systems that inhabit their properties. That’s why we are sharing this guide to drywell & drainage system maintenance and providing some helpful tips for when scheduling your next drainage inspection.
Are there stormwater fines in Arizona?
In Arizona it is required that standing water is removed 36 hours after a rain event. Poorly draining properties are at risk for costly fines. Additionally, standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes that could potentially carry the Zika Virus.
What is stormwater?
Stormwater is water generated by precipitation—either rainfall or melting snow and ice. It may infiltrate into the ground, evaporate or flow across impermeable surfaces. This surface runoff is sometimes referred to specifically as surface water.
How do I know if my property has drainage systems?
Unsure if you have drainage systems? We provide a free property assessment and inspection upon request. Chances are, the team at Torrent Resources installed the drainage components on the properties you own or manage and are qualified to locate drainage systems, thoroughly inspect them and properly maintain.
Why do I need to have my property inspected annually?
Like every other part of a property’s infrastructure, drainage systems must be maintained to function as intended. We offer free inspections annually to ensure the proper maintenance of your drainage systems. Neglecting to inspect and clean can lead to expensive damage that could have been prevented.
