In the wake of decisions . . .

The Lowe Down

It seems that Corning was destined to confront water issues, whether it’s drinking water or flood waters. Even in looking at photos through time, Corning had major flooding problems.

I don’t pretend to know every area that floods, but I know of areas that repeatedly deal with flooding. It seems we’ve been focused so long on the Crafton Addition that you’d think it was the only area that floods. We have some residents that quietly deal with excess water in their yards and some in their homes that do not complain. And some who have brought it to the city’s attention, but don’t want to feel they are beating a dead horse.

I’m not saying that the Crafton Addition doesn’t need some continued work on the flooding there, but the fixes they’ve implemented really seem to have improved the situation; the auger pump, the tractor, generator, etc. In fact, residents are saying it’s much better in that area. I drive by there nearly every time we get substantial rain and I agree with what I’m hearing others say.
