The City of Charleston began work today on the drainage ditch along the West Ashley Greenway in the area behind South Windermere Shopping Center. The clogged ditch has been the cause of flooding in the Old Windermere neighborhood every time there was a heavy rain. There are also drain pipes in the ditch that are clogged solid.

The maintenance action was prompted by a call to the city’s Citizen Service Desk. A Stormwater department employee was quickly dispatched to assess the scope of the problem. Several weeks later, an excavator was brought to the scene to scoop the six feet of vegetation that filled the ditch. You can call in drainage problems within the city limits to 843-724-7311 and the job will be assigned a tracking number.
