Stand together on flood control

Full story: The Morning Call

I recently returned to Lambertville , and am glad to be back. However, in catching up, I am disappointed that we have made little progress in stemming man-made floods.

So you want the government to ensure that you never have another flood? The greater good of everyday life has to take precedence over protecting a limited number of people against something which MIGHT happen every hundred years. Maintaining the reservoirs water supply at a certain level to prevent water shortages in drought situations has to be more important than possibly protecting a few river front properties.

Here we have another idiot that expects the gubament to take care of every aspect of his pathetic little existence. If you don't want your home to flood then don't live in a flood plain and don't live next to a body of water prone to flooding.

Take some responsibility, gheesh!

Did you not pay attention to what happened in the southeast last summer/fall? Atlanta was about 2 weeks from running out of water completely! I think it's more important to keep the reservoirs well stocked in case of a drought, then to protect people down river. Move farther from the river or get flood insurance. The possibilities of a drought are severe and the area that would be affected if the reservoirs went dry would cause much more of an impact. Think of more than just yourself. It's for the wellbeing of the greater area.
