Q. There is new construction behind my lot and I’m having drainage problems due to the construction. Is there anything the city can do to make the developer drain his development away from me?
A. There is a misconception that new development is not allowed to drain onto existing development. If the area drained onto the adjacent property prior to development, it may continue to do so after development. If problems are being created during construction, please contact the Engineering Department 940.458.7930 and they will investigate to determine whether the development is being properly constructed.
Q. The new construction behind my house is causing a lot of dirt and sediment to enter my yard. Can the city force the builder to place erosion protection on his lot?
A. Please contact the Engineering Department at 940.458.7930. It is helpful if you know the name of the adjacent development. The developer of a subdivision or a commercial site is required to maintain pollution control on his property until adequate vegetation is established.
