Email News Alerts

The city's liability in water run off issues in Nevis is being handled gingerly, maintenance supervisor Don Umthun cautioning fixing problems "could be opening up a can of worms."


Angie Otterness, who owns a Nevis student-built house on Evergreen Drive, had approached the city on problems with water run-off in her yard. A swale had been suggested, which she'd rejected, "because it would not be a permanent fix."

Otterness indicated road upgrades had caused the problem.
