    Ferndale created this dilemma by allowing the building in the wet land. With all the building, it acted like squeezing a big sponge and pushing all the water to the south. Not rocket science b any means, just engineers not doing the home work required for all the building and displacement of all the soil with cement and did make means for the water to go any where but over the road.
