DOUGHERTY COUNTY, GA -

A Dougherty County homeowner set up a pump of his own to try to move water out of his yard.

Last week we showed you water around Wayne Trent's home in the 3900 block of Moultrie Road in South Dougherty County.

Tuesday his yard looks like a lake again.

Trent says blocked drains in the ditches along the road are causing the rainwater to drain into his yard.

He put a pump in his driveway today.

Trent said "If I can't get rid of this water. If I get any more rain it's going to do it again. It's going to get full, and I'm going to try to do what I can do to keep from getting flooded."

Last week's rains flooded two of Trent's cars in his driveway and his shed behind his home.

He says state and county officials blame each other for the problem.
