The city released the flood map last week, outlining flood prone areas. Some were a surprise. One was in Ottewell near Breamar School. There were others in McKernnan and Lauderdale and now the talk is of building flood ponds. With a lack of available real estate, many of these might come at the expense of soccer fields and baseball diamonds. Is this a prevention overkill or have the pat few years shown us that this is a very real step worth taking?
