Flooding in Palo Alto: How good is drainage?
Original post made by John Gale on Jan 4, 2008
Unfortunately, with the recent deluge of liquid pouring from the sky, it's all that more obvious that poor drainage can cause flooding on streets, leading to car accidents and nearby housing damage, let alone pedestrians getting soaked when a passing car drives through a nearby puddle.
What is the work to reward ratio of adding better drainage to city streets? It seems that the results of ignoring our poor city drainage are becoming more obvious.
