NORWICH – Residents eager to see the dam removed from Canasawacta Creek are in for another letdown. Heavy rain fall last week assures that the dam will not be coming out until the water levels become much lower.
Up to three and a half inches of rain fell in three hours last Thursday, causing flash flooding to occur in many areas throughout the region. Residents of Plymouth Street whose homes have been flooded twice in the last two years, have been eagerly awaiting the day the dam would be pulled from Canasawacta Creek. Although engineers have said the dam had nothing to do with the flooding of late June, or the earlier flooding in April of 2005, residents of Plymouth Street are not so sure.
