Drainage issues and repairs are problems that have long faced the Town of Trophy Club. Since it's incorporation in 1985, drainage has always been a topic of discussion as evident by the creation of the Stormwater Master Plan and various other engineering studies which look deep into the towns infrastructure and its capabilities and/or defects that could be problematic in the future as the community expands.
Flooding is a coast-to-coast threat to the United States and its territories in all months of the year. Flooding typically occurs when prolonged rain falls over several days, when intense rain falls over a short period of time, or when debris impedes the flow of water under bridges, culverts, in the storm drain systems or in creeks. Flooding can also result from the failure of water control structures such as retention and detention ponds. The most common cause of flooding is water due to rain that accumulates faster than soils can absorb it and drainage systems or creeks can carry it away. Approximately seventy-five percent of all Presidential disaster declarations are associated with flooding.
