Great for developers who made a quick buck, not so great for residents. I’ve said all along that Sioux Falls’ unchecked over development was going to bite us in the ass eventually;
Long and other homeowners argued that development has filled in wetlands and forced all the runoff into their neighborhoods. Smith said they’ve studied those issues.
“The drainage in those areas from development they do their drainage studies to size them,” Smith said.
“Guess what, they didn’t work. July 29th and 30th their studies didn’t work. You can throw them out the window,” Long replied.
What Smith fails to mention is that Lincoln County probably doesn’t have the money to fix the problem.
