My name is Paul Clear so here goes, laws prevent people from blocking , altering , or removing any part of a natural water run off from rains, melting snow, ect...

Now if you do so and it should then flood someone else's property then not only could I be fined, but also responsible to fix it back, also if while flooding someone else's property it should happen to cause damage I would be liable for that as well, regardless If the work I had done was contracted out, since I own the property that now is a damaging menace to others I should not only by law but morally make things right and cover all loss to that person as a result of what I thought was a good plan...

Now let's shake it up a bit, if I can't do such a thing and I would be held liable for all damage related to my project. Then why in the hell should the city I live in be allowed to do it to me. And why shouldn't they pay for damages.

After Columbus bought some land from me and built what they and the state thought was a good plan, but for two years I have shown my house floods with little rain at all because all the run off from eight homes around me runs straight in. And when I called my insurance they could clearly see the problem and cancelled my coverage.

Thus my year long battle to get something resolved. But let's not forget while unable to insure my property due to quote man made hazard, my garage burns to the ground losing two classic cars, a motorcycle, a car that on disability took a year to save for so I could give it to my daughter for graduating with honors. Now all would have been taking care of if my property had not been deemed uninsurable because of my loving towns project..

So give me your thoughts, am I wrong to think they have a responsibility to at least take care of some of these issues. I have got contractors willing to work for a third of the original estimates to fix my yard and the other issues I can't mention due to possible litigation. None of us could leave something that was continuing to damage others property, or be allowed to not pay for repairs. Should the city ???
