ROCKLAND — The City Council is scheduled to hear a presentation Wednesday evening, June 29, on a plan to manage the community’s stormwater as concerns about flooding increase.

The City Council will meet at 5:30 p.m. at City Hall. The meeting can also be viewed on Spectrum Cable channel 1303 and on the city website where it is streamed live. The public can also participate via Zoom with the meeting ID number of 884 5992 3822 and the passcode: 029320.

Stormwater management has been an increasing concern, particularly for property owners along the Lindsey Brook system. A Halloween 2021 rainstorm flooded numerous properties, causing extensive damage. Two dozen homes were left without heat because the heating systems in the basements of the homes were damaged.

Engineers Wright Pierce of Topsham issued a preliminary report in October 2021 which estimated the cost of all work to manage stormwater across the city to be $13.8 million.
