PULASKI COUNTY, AR -- A big cleanup for an unwanted visitor on the way.
His name is Isaac.
Pulaski County Public Works crews are flushing out ditches and culverts and then vacuuming up the debris.
It's no easy task.
"We've got like 600 square miles in the county and it's hard to get to all of it. We're doing the best we can with the time we've got," said Danny Case, a supervisor with the Pulaski County Public Works Department.
The time is definitely ticking. The big pour will likely come to Central Arkansas late Thursday evening, bringing several inches of rain to a thirsty region.
But these guys want to make sure the water flows freely.
"Most of the time leaves stop our culverts up. That's where the community could come in and help a little bit," Case said.
Case said homeowners can help by unclogging their outside drains and clearing a path for rushing waters. While it's no guarantee this will prevent flooding, it could make a difference.
"I hope we don't get what they're calling for," Case said.
