There used to be big trees to suck up the water. Then greedy developers came in and clear-cut them, and put up subdivisions named after the trees they cut down and the animals they kicked out. Hooray for progress!

i still say its a good idea not to build houses in low spots.
but try telling that to people.
i see more people grade their "new home" location into a giant cereal bowl, and developers are more than happy to oblige or just do it for them anyways.
but then no its not the rain and snow, its a conspiracy!
and yes trees do suck an awful lot of water "thousands of gallons". cut them all down and guess what.

The water plant has been there for years. I am guessing that most of these residents have not. The water plant is a necessity to a metro area of 1.5 million people. A few annoying homeowners living a high water table area are not. Always looking for someone else to blame...that's the American way!

Wonder where the $ will come from to pay for a fix - no doubt the homeowners pockets.
