Storm Water Services did a great job with the recent flood in Charlotte. Thought I‘d share with you their assessment. Here’s the write-up.
August 5, 2011 – Flood Damage Assessments Continue
More than 100 high-risk properties that flooded on Friday used to have buildings on them but are now vacant lots due to the Storm Water Services’ Floodplain Buyout Program. The land is returned to open space which is not damaged when it floods. More than 230 flood-prone properties have been bought and town down in the past 11 years.
How did the flooding affect people? Watch this video by the American Red Cross, Greater Charlotte Chapter.
