Letter to the Editor: Funding flood

Could it be pledged funding

to relieve the flooding pains

has added to disasters,

caused by heavy rains?

But in essence, the problem

is building on flood plains

or on areas surge-prone

that water wants to claim

or on unstable clay

or on saturated moraine —

and ditching and construction

with improper drains.

No flood-planning or controls

structure siting to restrain

and a lack in engineers

with water-trained brains.

John Tuach, Pynn’s Brook
