Morehead Panel to Review Flood Control
Morehead Councilman Tom Carew says a panel appointed by the mayor will study flooding in the city to see if there are steps that can be taken to mitigate its impact.
Carew says the city has been hit hard twice within the past five years, so a thorough examination is a good idea.
“When they build highways, the culverts under the highways are designed to handle a fifty year rain. Well, maybe the culverts that we got along the bypass, which is U.S. 60 aren’t carrying as much water as they need to carry.”
Carew says there may also be ways the city can minimize flooding from Triplett Creek.
