Ripon Seeks Solutions To Foundry’s Flooding Problem

Officials in Ripon are working with a foundry that built its facility near Silver Creek year’s ago. During significant rain events storm sewers back up the waters get into AFK Corporation’s building on Pacific Street. City Administrator Lori Rich says normally they wouldn’t allow a facility to be built so close to a creek, but the company is grandfathered in. She says they will continue to work with the company to come up with a solution. She says they’ve offered help in the past with engineering solutions, but there would be costs involved.
