Wrong, the entire design is flawed for EVERYONE except for the developer.
which state board are you licensed with?

Keep telling yourself its taking that much rain to cause flooding problems. Its not. Retention ponds are a cheap scam sold to people for maximum profit and are directly liable for billions in damages.

There is something to be said for precipitation rates and the current design storm requirements across the region. I mean how many 10 year or 25 year "storms" do we need to see in a given period before the standards are changed?

Our neighborhood is 25+yrs old and the flooding issue has gotten worse as more developments have grown around us. We are "downstream" of many of them and are paying the price.

At this point, the lower half of Highland road park may as well be relegated as an aquatic nature preserve

Exactly. none of this would be happening if not for increased precipitation rates due to climate change.

And it’s only going to get worse

So we can just stop climate change and no more flooding? How do we pull that off?

I don't think he said that.

But we can plan around it... even if we can't stop it (and I don't think we can).

That’s not the point. The damage has been done and if we are going to keep developing in areas that are flood prone or developing in natural water retention areas building standards need to change now.

Ah, I agree on that. Unfortunately, developers and local governments will never agree to such things.

A lot of bitching and moaning about developers but I’m not hearing anything about the idiots that buy into these track home neighborhoods in old filled in swamps…. The builders can’t build them fast enough for the demand

Yeah man. They need to move to California, the must unsustainable area on the continent, unable to be sustained by the water and resources and burning every goddamned summer.

Yet idiots keep moving there. Some are even so amazingly unaware of their own stupidity they criticize others for doing similar in La, which is faaar more sustainable.

I mean, you could just buy higher land in Louisiana or built on pier and beam at a higher elevation. If you’re gonna live near water, act like it.

Exactly shite.

Climate change in the current pop culture definition has nothing at all to do with the precipitation patterns I described. Climate change in that cockamamey sense is a FAKE BULL shite ploy to redistribute wealth and effectuate global governance that has absolutely NO PLACE in these great United States. It's all fake science and media stunts spread around by fake news and fake motherfrickers paid for by more fakers, and the suckers who believe it are just that...SUCKERS.

Weather patterns change. They have for centuries. Big deal. It rains more here than it used to.

Or just don't live in an area prone to flooding.

Or fires.

Or drought.

I live in the middle of it and have watched the changes over the last 20 years.
And I'm a friggin genius, literally.
