Thomas: Cooperation needed on water
GREENCASTLE, Pa. - The stormwater drainage issues in southern Antrim Township can not be fixed without additional cooperation of residents, staff said Tuesday night.
Township Manager Ben Thomas said at this point, staff cannot continue taking steps to improve the drainage problems plaguing the area of Williamson Road at Colonial Drive unless it acquires the necessary right of way from residents.
In 2006, a 100-year storm dumped rain on the area, flooding homes and bringing the drainage deficiences to the surface and to the attention of the township, Thomas said.
The disrepair of existing stormwater management systems along Williamson Road and Colonial Drive has only made the problem worse for homeowners whose properties continue to flood with very heavy rain.
