Pouch Self Storage and other businesses on Livingston Street in Norwood, N.J., are pleased to hear their drainage problems will soon be solved. The mayor and city council authorized a shared-service agreement on Oct. 5 that will result in improvements to the street, including a resolution to bad drainage and flooding.
Pouch Self Storage was flooded eight to 10 years ago, according to one council member. The street also floods every time it rains. John Fanzo, who works for the facility, said the facility had to install gates to keep water out of the property.
The restoration project will be funded by the county, at no expense to the borough. The entire project is expected to take eight months. Work for the drainage portion is expected to begin this winter.
