I'm a meteorologist with little experience in hydrology. I'm studying my land with the rainwater flow patterns during heavy rain events and looking to manage the erosion, flash flooding, and ponding on my property. Thankfully it backs up to natural wetlands. The main issue is that the ditch in front of our house overflows faster than it removes water downstream. Our neighbors frequently have to place sandbags at the front of their driveway to keep their garage from flooding.
I'm not sure where to go next. Any thoughts on where to look for more information?
