HOBBY WHEEL US 2 Ironwood, MI 49938 Bessemer receives letter from attorney about flooding issue By MARGARET LEVRA Globe Staff Writer Bessemer Council received ;and placed on .file Ishpeming attorney -Richard M... Garybill, who has been retained by Besse- mer residents Ronald and Mar- lene Zaleski of 500 W. Lead St., about -an ongoing flooding -prob- lem on their-prpperty.. The matter was turned over to city attorney Michael Korpela. .Zaleskis have 'approached the city council with-numerous per- sistent flooding complaints on their' property flooding due to water flowage from Lead Street into a drainage ditch, alongside their. h'ome, Grayhill said. After reviewing correspondence from the minutes, of. city council meetings, maps, and pho- tographs, "It is clear; that their problem is ongoing and has not been resolved by .any of the efforts of the City of Bessemer." He noted the Zaleskis "contin- ue to have, seepage into their foundation and in accessibility to their- garage and storage build- ings. The runoff continues to pro- vide a significant environmental problem because of petroleum products which are washed off Lead Street and parking lots in the vicinity. "These petroleum -products settle out on the soil as the flood- ing drains. The water also consti- tutes a. health hazard, as it is so .slow flowing as to become stag- nant Garbage and debris have been found floating in it. "Considering all these haz- ards, something must be done to provide adequate flowage so that the-water does not flood eyery time there is a significant rain." Graybill noted two problems. first is with the culvert under Iron Street. The bottom of those culverts are too high to per- mit adequate drainage. The diameter of the culvert is too small. The culverts themselves plug up every time there is a sig- nificant rain, creating a damming effect for the water upstream.7' The second specific problem, he said, "is with areas further downstream which are creating artificial dams blocking the flowage. There is even one man- made impediment used by a neighbor to create a pool from can draw water to water his lawn, garden, etc. "The public appears to have deposited debris in the stream Page 2) ABELMAN CLOWNO Since mil SALE!
