Flooding on the Northside

Ward 1 Jackson city councilman Ashby Foote, who represents the Northside, has been fighting for his constituents whose property is being eroded by excessive water flow along the White Oak Creek drainage waterway. Homes in the Rollingwood and Carolwood area have been particularly affected. Foote believes south Madison County residential developments, upstream along White Creek, are to blame for the increased storm water runoff. Foote has filed requested documents from the U. S. Corps of Engineers and the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality, seeking to determine what water runoff mitigation was required when those developments were built. So far the agencies have been unable to retrieve any such information.
