How does drainage work in NorthWest Carrollton

Taken from with thanks to Matt McBride

"1830s-1850s Steam-powered, wooden paddle wheeled draining machine at Dublin used to drain the upriver communities. Claiborne is the limit of development. Beyond Claiborne are the backswamps."

It is amazing that this is still how the area is thought of, anything North of Claiborne and West of Carrollton is thought of as "not as good" as the rest of the area.   Living in this section of town we don't think it is true but we do recognize the tendency for this to be the way it is presented.

NorthWest Carrollton is in Service Area 6

This is how the subsurface drainage flows in NorthWest Carrollton
