I've had a similar experience with Madison County. I purchased my property in 2008 and that winter my property flooded right up to the house. The surface water is coming from the drainage ditches of the neighborhood where it is routed to my property with no outlet. I contacted Madison County Dist 3 Dept of Public works and got the run-around for 8 months with multiple visits to my property. I was promised (there are multiple drainage easements on my property)they would assist me with "V" ditches to alleviate the flooding but had to wait until the weather cooperated. When I became impatient and began badgering them about performing the work, they said they sent an engineer out to my property and I was told "it's a landscaping problem". My property continues to flood and I have also had to take out flood insurance in a non-flood zone. I'm extremely disappointed that I was conned into believing I would be assisted. I've tried to talk to the commissioner, Jerry Craig, but always get connected back to the people who have refused to help me. I know there are many more home owners that are facing the same flooding problems we are. I'll make sure the next commissioner I vote for intends to help the people he serves.

Drainage is a chronic problem in most of eastern Limestone County and a good portion of NW Madison County.
