Homes Move Into Bridgewater Floodplain

BRIDGEWATER, Va. (WHSV)-- That means changes and some frustration for the people who live there.

Some council members worried about safety consequences if changes weren't made.

For example, possible floating propane tanks in the event of flooding.
Several homeowners voiced their frustration, saying they felt singled out in their community to make changes to their homes.

"The house was built in '91, so here they come along in 2014, and say 'you gotta do this, this, and this, and you should have done that when you built the house.' I didn't build the house, I just bought it that way," said Nolan Cline, a homeowner.

The debate isn't over. Bridgewater town council decided to revisit the issue in 90 days.
