Local Residents Voice Flooding Concerns to City Leaders
Local leaders met Monday in Killeen to hear the concerns of residents of Belton, Harker Heights, Killeen and Nolanville who have been affected by flooding near Nolan Creek.
Our news partners at KWTX report that the meeting was part of a larger Nolan Creek Flood Protection Planning Study, which started in Feb. 2017. The goal of the study is to find the best way to mitigate and help respond to flooding in the area.
”The problem we run into is that there are a lot of trees that will fall in the creek. No one takes those trees out, so they wash on down just below where Little Nolan and Nolan Creek converge," Killeen resident David Doell said.
“Looking at regional detention ponds, looking at channel improvements, bridge improvements, those kinds of things," consultant Eric Scheibe said. "Again, focusing on if Killeen does something, if they build a new bridge, does that affect Belton, if Belton does something on a warning system can that benefit Killeen?”
