Letter: It’s going to get wet

Now that the town of Basalt has successfully relocated the residents of the Pan and Fork Mobile Home Park, is building the new Rocky Mountain Institute facility and started landscaping for a new park, I was wondering who might be held accountable for the design of the new riverbank, which has not held back an average spring runoff and is currently overflowing into the park. Hate to see what happens when the predicted 100-year flood occurs, and I hope the Rocky Mountain Institute staff and guests are stocking up on proper footwear.
