flooding on the northeast side
Property owner Jay Simmons credits housing developments north of Windridge office building for flooding of this parking lot last week. Developers have taken the practice of filling in "flood planes" with dirt to avoid observing regulations which prohibit building in such areas. The result is runoff, and increased flooding in areas near flood planes which still exist. Windridge office building is located next to Fall Creek at Emerson Way and Fall Creek Pkwy. When these pictures were taken on Friday, March 21, (two days after the rain which caused the flooding), the depth of the water in this parking lot was about 2 feet at its deepest points.
