drainage issues

Rain is a given in Southeast Louisiana.  An afternoon shower can easily dump four inches in a short amount of time.  Local code requires properties to drain to the street and not unto adjacent properties.

A construction site in Western Chalmette has been unable to contain it's own storm water and floods the adjacent neighborhood. The developer was recently ordered to remove the plastic chain wall and replace it with an appropriate concrete chain wall.  The removal of the plastic chain wall reveals even more issues.   Don't know what's going to be done about all the exposed wires.  There have been numerous other issues. 

This is what happens when construction proceeds without proper permits and inspections.
