If you own or manage a building that has a parking lot, or are in charge of a free standing parking lot, you may be having a parking lot water runoff problems. When it rains and or large amounts of snow melt in a short period of time, your parking lot can flood if the drainage system isn’t working properly. That means you need to shut down your parking lot until the water is removed, which can certainly lead to a loss of business. For example, if you manage a retail store, your customers don’t have anywhere to park if your parking lot is flooded.
They will end up visiting your competition instead. If you manage a business that operates out of the building and your parking lot floods, your employees won’t have anywhere to park for work. In addition, your customers or clients won’t have anywhere to park if they have meetings at your office. If you manage an apartment building, your tenants won’t be able to park their vehicles. Just imagine all the complaints you’ll receive if that happens.
Last but certainly not least, if you manage a free standing parking lot and it floods, you won’t be able to charge customers to park there during concepts, sporting events, or any other temporary parking situation that you charge money for. You also need to consider the fact that if your parking lot isn’t draining correctly and ends up flooding, the storm water and also flood your neighbors property, municipal property, and the street. If that happens, you are responsible to pay for the property damage, and may also be responsible for paying environmentally based fines.
If the flood causes any damage to the environment, you may also be responsible for clean up costs. Many parking lot owners don’t have flood insurance. If that’s the case, you’re looking at paying everything out of pocket. The good news is that a parking lot flood can be avoided.
