West Russell Drainage Project
THIS PROJECT WAS GRANTED EXPEDITED TREATMENT AT THE REQUEST OF ALDERMAN EUGENE RED JOHNSON
Ms. Alice Harris, retired educator, requested that a now closed drainage ditch be reopened. This ditch had been closed for a number of years and was causing rain waters to back up into her yard and making her feel uncomfortable about potential flooding.
The Street, Sanitation, Water and Fire Departments teamed up today and in the span of about 3 hours cleared more than 700 feet of drainage, cut three (3) small trees and tore down a 1000 square foot house.
