Documentation of flooding problems in Sherwood Oaks, along St. Edward's Drive ~~ After four years of much work by the St. Edward's committee documenting traffic and flooding problems in that neighborhood, the City has finally begun addressing the flooding issue on St. Edward's Drive. In the past two or three weeks, members of the staff from the Austin Department of Public Works and Watershed Protection have been walking around the neighborhood assessing current drainage infrastructure and doing tests to determine where the water from the floods comes from and taking measurements. The City has dedicated $50,000 of our tax dollars to study this problem and try to find a solution.
