Flooding yards in the area is not a new issue. However, I discovered during this last storm that there is water not entering my yard from the Old Field Creek flood plain but a pipe in a stand of trees on the Washington School property. Called the Mayor's office(follow the thread), routed to Public Works, to BOE to Superintendent's office. Waiting for a call back from the BOE Maintenance Group so I can ask them to come and see the water after we receive the additional 2 inches of rain predicted for tonight. Am about to call again, but figured hte more visability that can be brought to this drain dumping water in my yard(which then goes into my home and my neighbors as well) causing much unnecessary damage. If the pipe can be routed directly into the creek and not my home and yard the flooding may be reduced since this flooding is due to human error/oversite. Any contacts in the BOE who can assist with this issue would be appreciated. Attached are a few pictures of the rising water before it became to dark.
