If you experience flooding from a county drain

The State of Michigan requires that all cities follow these new reporting requirements for any sewer back-up claims.
An individual who has been injured or has suffered property damage as a result of a county storm drain system must provide written notice of the event within 45 days after the date the damage or injury was discovered.  Written notice must include the following:
  • Name, address and phone number of the claimant
  • Address of the affected property
  • Date of discovery of any property damages or physical injuries
  • Brief description of the claim
Failure to comply with the new reporting requirements will result in a denial of the claim.
