FLOODING-CANTON
Roads, homes flooded when historic rainfall overwhelms Canton storm sewers, retention basins

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, June 18, 2014 8:00 AM EDT
CANTON, Ohio


Officials in a northeast Ohio city say storm sewers and retention basins worked properly but were overwhelmed but the historic deluge of rain earlier this week.

The torrential rain in Canton on Monday washed out sections of roadway, flooded basements and forced raw sewage into some homes.

Canton Engineer Dan Moeglin tells The Repository that a resident measured 4.2 inches of water in 90 minutes on a rain gauge — twice the intensity of a 100-year rain.

Moeglin says "you don't design storm sewer systems to handle that level of intensity." He says "they did what they were supposed to do."

Residents were cleaning up Tuesday, hauling soaked furniture, children's toys and trash bags filled with clothing to the curb.
