A New Study Could Help Prevent Flooding in Downtown Waynesboro

WAYNESBORO,Va. (WHSV)-- The city council approved a $20,000 grant from the EPA which would fund a flood mitigation study. It's all a part of the city's Brownfield Project.

The study will look into ways to prevent flooding near the South River around the downtown area of Waynesboro.

People who live near the South River have said they're happy the city is taking steps to prevent flooding.

"My kids can't even go outside and play because it's such a major flood zone over there," said Trina Carter, who lives in Waynesboro, "it makes me feel happy that they're trying to do something about it and get it fixed."

The study is expected to take around six months to complete.
