OVERLAND PARK, Kan. — When it rains, puddles seem to form and streams flow through the same area time after time.

Now, the Johnson County, Kansas, Public Works Department wants help identifying those areas.

The county launched an online survey as it develops a watershed master plan. In the survey, people can map out the specific location where they notice flooding.

The county wants users to include as many details as possible about the issue; how deep the water is, whether water gets into homes, the source of the water, and users can submit pictures as part of their report.

Eventually, the county will collect all the information, share it with cities, and incorporate the data into its plan to prevent flooding around Johnson County.
