Flooding Solution Being Examined Again

(La Porte County, IN) - La Porte County officials could try again to provide relief to flooded homeowners at Meadowview Subdivision outside La Porte.


During a Monday night workshop between the La Porte County Council and La Porte County

Commissioners, La Porte County Attorney Shaw Friedman said it appears the county has an

obligation to at least play a role in correcting the situation there.


Building permits were awarded despite the high water table.  “It does seem to fall on the county to have some responsibility for dealing with what’s been a really bad flooding situation out there,” he said.  Friedman said previous attempts have been made by the county to rectify the situation.  He said he’s not sure if any grants are available to help the county offset the cost of whatever is done to try and solve the flooding problem.


Friedman said one possibility is dipping into the $21 million in federal stimulus money coming to La Porte County government.   The estimated cost of a previous solution proposed several years ago was $1.2 million.
