Cause

In 2017, a local pavement and asphalt company was payed to resurface the old roadways and parking lots. before the resurfacing, the parking lots had problems draining since the drains would become clogged with leaves during the fall, in 2015-16, the parking lot and roads would flood and destroy cars costing thousands of dollars in insurance. After the company resurfaced the roads and parking lots, they accidentally paved over half of the drains in the area, it is know by the government to be the best cause, it also did not help that a Thunder storm that caused three inches of ran came to the area.
