City and partners work on response plans as floods are expected to continue

As of June 19th 2018, 7 new United States Geologic Survey wells in Kalamazoo County indicated record high groundwater levels. Last quarter 11 (different ones) of the total 21 wells were at record highs. Many people in Kalamazoo County are continuing to suffer water in their homes and this condition is expected to continue for a few more months. Please hold them in your thoughts.
