During a rather sudden downpour in Pembroke Pines this past Thursday on June 19, 2014 at around 1:30 in the afternoon, the drainage capacity near the entrance of the community of Walden Lake was overwhelmed causing rain water to back up onto the swale, engulfing it entirely and sending water up the driveway of the houses closest to the drain.
Neither the police or fire department can help during such an event.
It also turns out that the City of Pembroke Pines has a 72 hour rule, meaning that they will not come out to investigate or resolve the situation unless the "flooding" persists for 72 hours. However, homeowners should take photos documenting the flooding and send photos to the Public Services department within the City of Pembroke Pines. Within the community of Walden Lake, the street and drainage system are the responsibility of the City and not the homeowner's association. If the drainage system needs to be re-evaluated and improved, it's the City of Pembroke Pines that can get the job done. You can call to report drainage issues. But you should also email your photos to them or post them here and send the link to the City.
Of course, in order to post your photos, you will need to establish an account within UmeNow, where signup is free.
