What causes flooding in High Point?
Flooding is a natural process that occurs in watersheds. You have probably experienced flooding to some degree if you live along large streams or bodies of water. However, it is still possible to experience flooding from small creeks and ditches. Occasionally, situations such as undersized or obstructed pipes can also cause flooding issues. High Point is currently working on several projects in order to improve flooding issues throughout the city. For more details please refer to the Stormwater Improvement Project section.
