Councilman hears about water problems by Susan Redden Globe City Hall writer water problems flooding on Turkey Creek and damage from water Runoff through residential areas a dominated discussions thursday night when Joplin councilman Milt Wolf met with residents of Royal Heights and Castle Rock areas of the City. The freshman councilman elected just Over a month ago in his Campaign had cited a need for Small group meetings with residents. Thursdays meeting marked the first one and Wolf said he planned to hold others in other parts of Joplin if they were requested. Quot i done to intend to stand Here and Tell you i have the answers a he said. Quot for me this is a fact finding the session held at Royal Heights United methodist Church attracted about 25 residents. And the crowd included some who favored a proposed . Army corps of engineers project on Turkey Creek and others who opposed it. The corps is completing its final design for the project designed to address flooding problems along the ? Creek and a Public hearing on the plan will be held this summer Wolf said. The Council last september approved the corps study but has made no decision on whether it will approve the final proposal. The plan would also require property owners donation of land needed for the project. Quot at present it appears the plan will propose widening and changeling concentrated on one Side of the Creek from St. Louis to Florida avenues a Wolf said. Some residents said they thought the corps plan was unworkable and that a better solution would be the construction of containment Ponds to hold water that flows from developments upstream including Missouri Southern state College and North Park mall. Wolf said he is concerned about what would happen when water from a widened Turkey Creek would dump into a narrower Channel below St. Louis Avenue. Other residents including some who Are forced from their Homes during periods of heavy rain said they favored the project v Quot in be had water five feet deep in my House a said one woman. Wolf who is a Royal Heights resident said he believed that increased development had worsened flooding problems on the Creek and cited increased development As a source of storm water problems also being experienced by those in the area. Residents agreed and said problems had worsened significantly with development in Oakland Heights North of Zora Street. Quot How can the City allow that development when we be already got flooding problems a asked one woman. Quot it gets into our basements and garages we have no Back Yard. Its going to Wash us Quot you can swim in our Side Yard a added another woman. Commercial and residential developers should be required to contain Runoff on their properties several said. Residents seemed less interested when Wolf said perhaps a Bond Issue could be proposed to raise the funds needed for curb and Gutter storm drainage projects and other improvements to handle water Runoff and to replace old sewer lines that allow water infiltration and cause sewage backups during heavy Rains. Quot Why should we have to pay a tax if we did no to cause the problem a asked one. A number of residents also expressed concern about what effect Runoff from developed areas and discharge from Industry is having on Turkey Creek. Several said there is less aquatic life in areas of the Creek. Several also complained about soot and Oil in airborne emissions from Tamko Asphalt products on North High Street. One woman said emissions from the Hudson foods processing Plant in Royal Heights had improved for awhile but had become worse. Quot it was better for awhile after the City got after them. Now its bad a she said. Discussions also touched on trash collection recycling and conditions of Florida Avenue. Wolf took notes on residents questions and said after the meeting that he would submit them to City manager Leonard Martin for answers.
