    When will the Corps of Engineers wake up and realize that the Tusc River needs to be dredged and deepened. The river gets runoff from the sewers, from Copley and Fairlawn. But of course these engineers have no common sense. We will just let it flood all the time. They don’t live so why do something about it.
