By BBN Staff: As part of its general nationwide Flood Mitigation Program, the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) has deployed equipment to the Toledo district where it is currently engaged in excavation and clearing of drains.
Work is currently taking place in the Magoon and Indianville areas, and will soon extend to Hopeville and other flood prone areas.
NEMO Toledo District Coordinator, Kenton Parham, says they are familiar with the major problem areas, most of which have been confirmed by the recent rains. He says they are confident that the works being done will significantly alleviate the situation, enabling the water to run off quickly when it rains excessively.
