Bay Ridge residents question plan

Bay Prairie moves to improve drainage

“You created the problem, you’re the ones who should solve it,” said Lynn Grebe, spokesman for a group of Bay Ridge residents, during a meeting with representatives of Bay Prairie Corp., the developers of the subdivision.

The plan, drawn up by Ferguson Rachunek and Associates Inc. of Wharton to solve the subdivision’s drainage problems, involves enlarging an 18-foot wide canal bank on the north side of Bay Ridge by 38 feet. Russell Law, representing Bay Prairie, informed the residents the company will buy the required pipes, and the Lower Colorado River Authority (LCRA) will install them.

“I’m not saying you will not get another drop of water in Bay Ridge,” Law said. “But this is all we can do and keep within the boundaries of our property.”
