Regarding the Garden City flood plains:
If I lived in one of these questionable flooding areas, I would certainly want to know just what it takes in inches of rainfall to create a flooding designation and in how much time? Next I would want to know how many acres of water would enter these potential flooding areas? Then I would want to know how much water could be drained through our many different sources for water drainage and how long it would take to keep the water below the flood stage?
With the answers to these questions, then maybe there could be cheaper and better solutions developed. I think there should be nothing done until these things are known.
