Yesterday’s storm overflowed in the storm canal next to the office and flooded the parking lot. Luckily it didn’t get into the building this time but the prospect of the next storm forecast to be bigger may flood the office. The problem is that the city is supposed to clear out the storm canal. We have been calling them to do it for over a year. The environmental Protection Agency makes them get a permit to do this operation. The City drags their feet on the issue until it is too late. The water runoff in the drainage canal sweeps all the garbage and trees and plants into the storm pipes. There is too much rubbish to fit in the drain pipes and the water is then dammed up and over flows the banks of the canal and on to our property. This could have been prevented if the city had done their job in the first place.
