Video: Brookhaven Community's Stormwater System in Action

While Drew Valley seems to have been spared any flooding, other Brookhaven communities are reporting problems.

A Brookhaven neighborhood that has suffered flooding during heavy rains in years past seemed to escape the same fate on Wednesday.

A few years ago, DeKalb County and other public works agencies oversaw the construction of a massive stormwater retention network in Drew Valley. That included the construction of a retention pond that also serves as a wetland in the community.

From the looks of the above Patch clip, the system seemed to be working well. But other areas of Brookhaven and Chamblee are reporting problems.

On SeeClickFix, District 2 councilman Jim Eyre reports that parts of Skyland Drive are flooding, with chunks of asphalt being washed away.

Another resident reports that a new drainage system is needed for E. Georgian Drive in Chamblee.
