Mary Smith wrote in to say after the July 4th flooding in Lemmon Valley, the county spent several days fixing the drainage along Matterhorn Road. As a result she says water is now pouring down into yards on Oregon Blvd. when it rains. Mary wants to know if the county has a plan to prevent the flooding there ?
I spoke with Harold Stone , he's an engineer for Washoe County's Public Works Department. He said he wasn't aware of the flooding problem on Oregon Blvd. but he said he is more than happy to meet with residents to talk about their concerns and come up with a plan of action.
It could be that a new trench needs to be dug or the water needs to be re-routed somehow. Stone says he'll meet with Mary and have a hydrology report done so they can develop a plan of action.
If you have questions along these lines give the county road department a call at 328-2180 and they'll work with you on setting up a meeting.
