Are you concerned about the recent rain-related street flooding in the Cape?

  1. Yes, the city needs better drainage.
  2. No, it’s a rare occurrence and the city did a good job dealing with it.
  3. All things considered elsewhere, we should count ourselves lucky.
  4. I wasn’t affected.
  5. Other.

Electr -- Hear, hear ! ! !

Some folk break out in a NASTY rash (or worse) when confronted with a verifiable FACT that conflicts with one of their baseless items of sheer FAITH -- the more nonsensical the Faith the more severe the rash ! ! !

"Short Fuse" - QUOTE " running on the same negative agenda " Now that's real amusing!!! You are apparently at the wrong intersection. Chiquita & Trafalgar flood out constantly. Why don't you ask your buddies at the city works. I'm certain they will confirm what I have stated. It's NO SECRET. Ask anyone who lives around SW 15th.

Minorlaw you missed your calling, they are looking for Drama Writers on Broadway all the time. I drive through there on occasions after a heavy rain and haven't experienced the flooding conditions you reference. But, then I am not running on the same negative agenda that you have in place.

Electrician - The corner of Trafalgar & Chiquita foods out on any given day, even with afternoon rains. It pools on the corners and flood out the right hand lanes. This has been going on since the Water & Sewer Project 2 years ago. It should have been corrected before they repaved Chiquita Blvd., but someone in the city "Passed it" and now the citizens of the Cape are left to pay their 20 year assessments as well as to deal with the flooded corner. Check it out for yourself on any given afternoon that has more than 10 minutes of rain.

It is always entertaining to read comments of those who have no basis for the comments they write. They do not understand nor do they want to understand for understanding the facts would get in the way of their political and emotional diatribes. A 100 year rain event occurred. The portions of the city that rely on freshwater canals experienced flooding. The same canals that were bone dry 5 months prior. The city/NOAA/NWS did not anticipate the amount of rainfall prior to Friday evening. Had they known the weir plates would have been pulled as they were on Saturday and many of the road issues would have been abated as seen by Saturday evening. For the most part those living on saltwater canals did not experience this issue, except during periods of high tide, which is analogous to the freshwater canals and the weir plates. So, prior to the 100 year event, when have you seen flooded streets that were this bad?

They didn't do a thing. Rather then spending the money they collect for storm water management they spend it on a land grab. Every year they collect money and waste it instead of using it for the purpose it is collected, they steal the money from the tax payer and use it as fun money.

Throw the incumbents out THROW THEM ALL OUT

QUOTE from Cape Coral News ""At one point, 50 percent of the city's 3,000 miles of roadways had standing water. Today (5 days later) it is mostly gone. The intersection of Chiquita & Trafalgar is still closed."" -- There is an obvious problem with the sewer system at that intersection. There is sitting water at that intersection each & every time we get any rainfall (this includes 1 hours of afternoon rain). Correct me if I'm mistaken, but wasn't that area part of the SW 6&7 Water & Sewer project that was just done less than 2 years ago??? Whoever approved the drainage over there should be fired. It floods every time it rains. Someone really needs to do something about that intersection.
