Public works crews acting to avoid thaw flooding

As temperatures drop from 40-degrees to the below freezing range,  local public works crews are preparing to avoid water pooling on streets during the next thaw.  Algoma Public Works Director Matt Murphy says DPW employees are working to keep storm sewer grates free of snow and ice.



In Egg Harbor, state highway department crews keep storm sewer openings clear on Highway 42, which passes through the downtown.  Village DPW Director Jeff Meyer says his department ensures storm drains at the intersection of Highway 42 and Harbor School Road stay clear to avoid big flooding risks.



Meyer says he's looking forward to the Highway 42 improvement project.  That could add larger drainage pipes to handle more water and reduce flood risks.
