What’s Happening Near Boom Road?

An unusual operation is taking place along the Burrell Boom Road where a massive amount of floodwater is being pumped from one property and funneled through a nearby culvert which empties into Ridge Lagoon Estates.  Residents of that community were taken aback when they observed that Teichroeb and Sons Limited had built a retaining wall to stop the flow of water through the underground duct onto its property.  What is all the more strange is that the water is being pumped back into the culvert where it washes out into the residential neighborhood.  This evening, News Five spoke with Lennox Bradley, Chief Engineer in the Ministry of Works, who told us that after reviewing the video that was sent to him earlier, the Public Roads Act was not being violated.  While it is not within the ministry’s purview, we were not able to get a comment on the operation.  From all appearances, nonetheless, it is tantamount to draining one’s excess water into a neighbor’s yard.
