Niagara Gazette — They said the development residents were promised fixes since it was built and have yet to see anything make substantial improvements.
"Because of the way it was built, it created a natural dam," Brian Pollock said. "The only way they could really fix this is to get rid of the water. They need to pump the water out but they don't want to pay for it."
Pollock and his neighbors said the issue they're more concerned about isn't the pond and the health concerns it poses, including the mosquitos. They're upset the continuous water problem has caused each of them to worry every year about sub pumps and indoor flooding.
He said he's burned out several pumps over the past few years, as they remain constantly running each spring and never shut off.
"The sub pump runs nonstop for three months," he said. "This has been going on for six years. But nothing's happened until last January. This is a start, but it's all (it) is."Contact reporter Timothy Chipp at 282-2311, ext. 2251 or follow on Twitter @timchipp.
