A call for a flood barrier

Dear Editor:

Spring is a season everyone enjoys. Sunny days, cool breezes and birds chirping. Everyone enjoys the springtime, everyone but the residents of the Pan and Fork Mobile Home Park.

For them spring isn’t just sunny cool breeze days. For them it’s a time of danger. Spring doesn’t just bring out the birds and melt the snow, it rises water levels. It rises the water levels high enough to put an entire community of 80 or more families in the streets.

A solution for this would be putting up a flood barrier. The barrier would be called Aqua Fence, and it could be easily installed. Another reason this fence is good is because it is also easily removed. Since this fence is bendable it doesn’t break easily.
