Re: Latest News on Metro-East Sanitary District from the BND
Worker A, ill go back to what the engineer said at the Pontoon Beach meeting. In so many words he said we can tinker around the edges and perhaps make a difference, but any real fix is going to cost a whole lot of money that we dont have. We can put a pump in at Mallard Park, we can dig this little area out some, we can keep all the pumps running, bla bla bla, but we are still screwed of the conditions get bad enough. Its a flood plain, and flood plains sometimes flood. The biggest joke is flood insurance which pays virtually nothing in 99.999% of the cases.
