Franklin County property owner frustrated over flooding issues

A Franklin County homeowner has dealing with years of flooding on his property.

Ed Mack told ABC6/FOX28 that it is all due to a neighbor’s construction project. He stressed to ABC6/FOX28 that he has reached out to county engineers for help, with no luck.

Mack told ABC6/FOX28 that the flooding problem has been an ongoing problem for about five years. He said his property has been destroyed. He does not believe he can sell it, and no one seems willing to help.

"I've got property that's not usable," said Mack.

He told ABC6/FOX28 that every spring his four acre property along London Lancaster road in Groveport floods. Somewhere between 6 and 8 inches of water rising on his property.

"It's destroying my house. It's destroying my life, it's destroying my family's life," said Mack.

He told ABC6/FOX28 that the issues started when a neighboring farmer tried to clear a field. In the process, breaking the 8-inch main that helped to drain several properties in the area.

"Some of my neighbors get water up to their front doors. It gets that bad in the spring," said Mack.

His home sits on the county line. He told ABC6 that Pickaway county won't fix it because he pays taxes in Franklin county. At this point he told ABC6/FOX28 that can't get action from anyone.

"I keep getting the run around," said Mack.

As he works to figure it all out, his frustration only grows.

"Nobody seems to care," said Mack.
