How Often will Page Mill Flood

Original post made by Marc, Midtown, on Dec 11, 2015

I think we should start a contest to predict how often the underpass at Page Mill and the train tracks will flood this year.

Both the city and the county spend money to put in pumps to prevent flooding but each time it rains they fail and have excuses why the previous repairs didn't work.

So lets start a pool to see how many times it floods this winter and who they blame it on.

We could do the same with the creek flood warning system. How many times does it give false alerts.
