Rain Water Drainage Ditch mismanaged
The ditch and culvert is being reworked to facilitate a new drive way location.
The problem is the contractor is installing a much larger diameter new culvert than the existing culverts located up and down stream of the reworked new culvert. The bottom elevation of the planned new culvert and ditch is now low pointed relative to the existing ditches or drainage trenches and existing culverts. This will cause a low point in the entire ditch that will collect water and bread insects and stink up the areas in front of the homes local to the reworked ditch.
Polluted stormwater runoff is commonly transported through municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s), and then often discharged, untreated, into local water bodies.
