Flooding problem in Ogden may be resolved

READ MORE: Flooding problem in Ogden may be resolved
Nearly every time we get a hard rain, Asheton Road in Ogden gets flooded. This past weekend was no different. Since then, we've been showing you the neighborhood's problem, and what it takes to make sure the ditches on Asheton Road are flowing. Rita Mole has lived on this street for the last eight years. She said every time it rains, it floods. After each flood she tries to find help, with no luck. -- until Monday. "I don't have the time to call around. It took yesterday, for instance, over an hour to talk to absolutely no one," said Mole. "My calls were eventually returned thank God but I think that was due to you all showing up." Finding help was not an easy task. WWAY spent hours on the phone trying to find answers. After our calls, county inspectors went out to Asheton Road and discovered a problem under it. The Department of Transportation said they would be out there to clean it up at 8 a.m.Tuesday morning. A crew eventually showed up -- about an hour late. Mole said, "I'm glad, I'm absolutely happy that they're here this morning taking care of the problem." Mole hopes the cleanup fixes the problem. "I'm just hoping that the next time it rains, not a storm, but that the next time it rains, the road ways will remain clear, and that everyone who drives through the community will be safe," said Mole. Mole has invited the county storm water inspector to the next home owners association meeting, to educate the residents about their responsibilities as far as keeping the ditches clear. We spoke with the county engineering department and they agreed to attend the home owners meeting.
