Dixie County, Florida -- Many of the systems that are supposed to help with the flow of water are badly damaged and need to be replaced.
Dixie county officials are working diligently to maintain and replace the existing culverts as needed and allow the water to flow as it should.
Culverts are structures that allows water to flow under a road.
Residents are concerned that the canals and culverts aren't being maintained like they should.
Dixie county commissioner Jason Holifield says they're working as fast as they can.
ason Holifield, Dixie County commissioner: "One thing we're afraid of and preparing for is hurricane season. That's why we have been out here working with these neighbors as best we can because we want these waterways to flow if we were to get a tropical storm or a hurricane we want to have everything in order and that's what we're working on."
Holifield says with a group of 3 to 4 men they can replace the torn up culverts to help with the flow of water in half a days time.
