Dry Basements at a Price

Posted Tuesday, February 10, 2009

In Northeast Ohio when it rains, it pours--off roofs and parking lots and into pipes, culverts and streams often ill-equipped to handle the flow. Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District's storm water management plan is aimed at dealing with the water that can flood our basements and foul our waterways by ending the patchwork approach that has every community fending for itself. But it comes at a price, a new bill that would come at a time when many homeowners are already strapped for cash. Find out if the storm water plan holds water with guest host, Plain Dealer columnist Mike McIntyre, Tuesday at 9:00 a.m. on the Sound of Ideas.
