Town hall meeting tonight to discuss northwest flooding

By Jennifer kastner. CREATED Sep 5, 2013

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Residents in the northwest area that have been affected by flooding in recent weeks are hoping to get some answers tonight.

A town hall meeting is being held to discuss new flood control plans.

The town hall meeting was scheduled after the area around Grand Teton Drive in Centennial Hills was flooded multiple times.

The flooding is primarily caused by the runoff from the mountains to the west and an overflowing retention basin.

Just yesterday, city officials announced they have pushed up plans to build an underground drainage system.

Regional flood control officials say they are doing the best that they can to solve the issue of flooding in the Las Vegas valley.
