Driveway in Ilion near Steel Creek

Steel creek over it's banks

This creek never goes over it's banks on this dead end Street off West St. The retaining wall on the John St. side gave way & left us with this. One residence was evacuated with a flooded basement while the remaining residents had water issues of their own. Pic #1 may not look like much, but that is our driveway that NEVER gets water on it-and to the left is what used to be our lawn. It wasn't this bad during the 2006 flooding.
