Letter: Drainage Problems

Posted: Tuesday, July 03, 2001

Myself and a number of neighbors have water drainage problems in the Mendenhall Valley due to the lack of adequate drainage. There are either non-existent ditches, too small ditches, large culverts leading to small culverts or perched culverts placed too high up to be of any good. There are even covered ditches that drain into people's backyards instead of into ditches that go somewhere.

A drainage plan for the Mendenhall Valley needs to be a priority! I'm putting together a map with all of our situations to give to our elected officials. If you have drainage and/or water problems please e-mail me at Flood13@hotmail.com with a brief description of your situation and where you are located.
