New York City Department of Environmental Protection Issues Statement on Flooding Throughout the City

Due to severe flood conditions because of heavy rains, DEP has received numerous reports of sewer backups and street flooding. In addition it is anticipated that conditions will worsen as more rain is forecast for later in the day.

In order to enable DEP to follow up and address these conditions it is imperative that people affected call 311 so the reports can be logged in and responded to. CALLING 311 IS THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO GET HELP.
