A group of concerned Northwood residents expressed their anger over repeat flooding in their neighborhood. They told council they've warned the City over and over again about the periodic flooding that happened long before the May 28th flood. They feel they've done everything they can to prevent flooding. They are in favour of City staff's plan to conduct a neighborhood drainage study.
