Devonshire homeowner seeks flooding prevention

Thursday, December 6, 2018 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Local News

It’s been known as the Hills of Devonshire.

The neighborhood of upscale homes in Salisbury Township is north of Lehigh Street, south of Devonshire Road and east of Keystone Road.

Wendy Carney, a resident of Devonshire, wants township officials to address stormwater flooding she says is damaging her family’s property.

Carney said the problem is caused by a storm sewer drain not handling the volume of water in recent rainstorms, resulting in sheet-water flow downhill to her home.
