    With all that unused land off Barber Rd and at the end of Wolf Creek back behind PPG why dont they just make a big pond to collect tbe excess water. Another spillway. I understand that off Barber Rd use to be a dump/ landfill but what ever will be built there? I grew up on Miami and this has happened as long as i can remember. Every year same old thing. You pay now or pay later.

      They definitely need retention ponds in a few areas, that is for sure. I will agree there!
