Residents: Stamford slow to fix flood woes at complex
Residents of a Stamford apartment complex complain the city has done little to dampen their water woes.
A Brighton Court condominium resident contacted News 12 Connecticut after the complex suffered extensive damage from flash flooding on Oct. 11. The woman says, bottom line, some of the units remain uninhabitable. Cars were also destroyed.
"These sewer drains backed up and overflowed," says Fran Lupinacci. "I do feel the city is responsible for a lot of this."
Ben Barnes, with the city of Stamford, says the city has not ignored flood victims and that drainage problems are being probed. He also confirms that residents are eligible for low-interest loans from the Small Business Administration to deal with the damage.
Meanwhile, Stamford and Darien residents plan to meet Tuesday night at Darien Town Hall to discuss flooding in both communities.
