Residents from Midlothian, Illinois attended the June 16 presentation of the Stormwater from the Ground Up program at the Dolton Public Library. They shared their neighborhood's flooding problems and their attempts to get help.
At nearly every place we bring the program, League members meet people whose homes suffer from chronic flooding. While we appreciate their thanks for some new ideas about how to address their problems, it is clear that people are overwhelmed. Additional governmental efforts to assist individuals is needed.
