This is not a homeowners association but it individually owned home .
The drainage problem was A Eaglerock problem resulting from putting improper drainage in a new road above the area I live in . This problem has since been resolved however damage to my driveway exist . The damage to the driveway is extensive to the point that it no longer can be driven on as it's up a relatively steep grade .

Also, is this a RURAL or URBAN area?

This was developed by Eagle rock located in Hazleton Pennsylvania . To see the overall development I would suggest you go online and look at Eagle rock resort Hazleton Pennsylvania.The road that created the drainage problem was put in by Eagle rock it caused extensive damage to housing below that resulting in some FEMA money relief for Eaglerock
