I'm addressing the problem with The Spruces. I contend it's recoverable, with a little engineering. As I understand it, most of the water was caused by the brook that runs under the highway to an interceptor connector - located, in a fenced area, next to the recreation hall - which is installed incorrectly (large inlet, small outlet), and is not sufficient to handle any large amounts of water; it would have a tendency to flood. Why not dig a large trench from there (enough to handle the worst condition) the length of the property to the river, then raise up (fill in) an area large enough to accommodate trailers of good condition, closer to Route 2, save the entrance, use the the remainder of the property, next to the river and beyond, for a park.
Works for me.
I'm sure the costs would be substantially less than developing Lowry and the residents won't have their lives disrupted.
