Well, it looks as if the area around the Northridge may finally be getting some relief. For the past couple of years, there has been draining problems over there. Everytime we get a nice storm, the crawl spaces become water-logged. This, apparently, has caused pretty significant damage to some of the homes over the years, and has even prompted some legal action.
Now, a solution seems to have came into site. Both seem to involve a special drain called a french drain. This basically is a pit that directs water away from homes. The size and specifications will, of course, depend on how often water accumulates in the crawl space.
And, for those residents who don’t like this solution, they can also accept an option of cash from the developer — around $7,700, to be exact.
This case was up in the Carson City District Court today. Results, I presume, are forthcoming. We’ll keep you posted if anything interesting happens.
