Montebello residents want flooding addressed

Posted: Updated:

Frustrated homeowners in Montebello have taken their concerns about flooding to Rockland County lawmakers.

Roseanne and David Gordon say whenever there's a heavy rainstorm, the nearby Mahwah River overflows and their backyard begins to resemble a lake.

"It should be dredged so that there's enough of an outflow of water and it doesn't accumulate and endanger the homes," David Gordon says.

Neighbors say a representative from the county's drainage agency has already reached out to them and scheduled a meeting for next month. Neighbors hope it will be the first step in providing some much-needed relief.
