Susquehanna River: Same Old Same Old...

  

The more things change, the more they stay the same.



And 39+ years earlier...



Several years ago, I wrote a letter to the editor about flooding, continued development within the Susquehanna's watershed, and the probability of continued high(er) water events. I'm pretty sure it's still online, but don't have time to find it this morning as, once again, I have two sump pumps running to keep my basement ( a.k.a. man cave ) - which we just put back together on Sunday - from getting flooded again.

For those that need to know, my home's foundation sits on bedrock, and when the water hits that, it slows down considerably and starts to pool under my basement slab. Earlier this year, we paid a "dirt specialist" to come in and expand our drainage system and create some new swales to move water away from our home more quickly. I think he'll be getting a call in the next day or two.

Off to check the basement...
