Municipal News

By Miranda Startare

New Eagle Borough Council listened to the concerns of a resident about extensive flooding on his property at the February 5 monthly meeting.

Keith Richardson, a resident of Vine Street in the borough for 36 years, described the situation as a “pond” in his yard that is flooding his and some of his neighbors’ basements and properties.

Richardson said that his Vine Street property has always had a flooding issue due to what he believes is spring water that local residents say was covered up many years ago. The flooding has increased in recent years, according to Richardson and his neighbors, creating saturated yards, with areas of smelly, stagnant water. Richardson stated that he has had to cut grass wearing rubber boots due to the conditions.

Council listened to Richardson’s concerns and requests for a solution, such as a french drain to direct the water into the creek below the properties, and assured the residents that they will investigate the problem and decide on a solution for the issue.
