One of the first things to check is if the areaway drain outside your basement door is clogged. If drainage and waterproofing measures are in place and you are still having a significant problem, contact the Department of the Environment (DoE) at 301-883-5810. Staff from our office will inspect your property to evaluate and determine the extent of the problem and if a drainage study is necessary.
The Department of the Environment (DoE) administers and manages flood awareness and protection programs in the county, as an active participant in the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) Community Rating System. For more information, please call DoE at 301-883-5810.
