Flooding chases tenants from apartments in Alliston
Posted July 16,
The Weather Network's now historical data for this area based at Borden
yesterday counted 46.5 mm (1.8 inches) of rain accumulation that fell
hard in long bursts, overwhelming storm sewers in some areas, and
pouring into three apartments at 13 Tottenham Road forcing the
temporary relocation of the tenants.
New Tecumseth Fire Chief Dan Heydon said this morning via email that
Station 1 was called to the building at 4:26 pm for reported flooding into
three units located immediately south of Fandrich Motors.
"On arrival crews found water had entered three apartments causing
sufficient damage that hydro was shut down to two of the units due to
safety concerns," wrote Chief Heydon. "New Tecumseth Chief Building
Official attended the scene and determined the three apartments are not
to be occupied until repairs have taken place."
