She said it's created a real problem for her. The new home's rain runoff has turned her driveway into a lake.

Comments

Veronica : " I don't wanna be on camera" *Blurrs already exposed face* LOL

Handy Menagerie : The new house is graded to current building code, the old house is not. Plain and simple. Her driveway is sloped incorrectly.

fangzea : I love when people think that government employees care.

UmaroXP : Possibly the least interesting story I've ever seen.

Kula : Must have been a REALLY slow news day for a flooded driveway to become a story.

jim h : I'll tell you exactly why the water is setting on her driveway... Her drive way doesn't drain to the street..she needs to replace her driveway so it drains like it should... Before the new house was build her water drained onto that property... Now she has to deal with the problem... He driveway

james read : Heres a good idea Diane. Sell your home now, because the market you live in is hot!!! Take the money and buy a nicer home in the country so you wont have to complain about run off and mcmansions

juliadennehy : I just watched for the legs.

Gabe : She doesn't want to be on camera. Too bad. She works in a public building the public has a right to be, including press. You are literally public relations, everything you do at your job is public. LOL at the well timed face blur

Brennan Matthews : A “ U-Boat!?!?” Lol

jim h : That's Gods way of telling her to fix her driveway

Dee B. : i laughed @ the blur after showing her face. so petty

Dr. John Jones : The older home is flooding because in fact it is not up to code. Your house has to be 1 foot higher the city street in front. Thus why the old house was up and the new build is up. But none of the "news warriors" know the code so they just say anything.... Like how she said "you need a world war 2 nazi submarine" to park in a drive way. #cantfixstupid

Tasha Macie : I live in it nice neighborhood with a lot of old almost historical houses and now every once in awhile when you're driving down the street you see a cookie cutter house that looks like it belongs in one of those gated communities and it just doesn't fit. It has no charm.

VroodenTheGreat : A U-boat? REALLY?

Viktor Meilands : It's funny they blur her face only after she says it

Joni I luv my fam : 👩‍💼🎙So back up the stairs we went to try and get real answers from Beth, the public relations officer... ..."📽🙍‍♀️I don't want to be on camera." Ok... "📽🙈"

Dracodin197 : A public official doesn't want to be on camera well tough.

Julie Purpleskater : Replacing smaller, older, more affordable homes with McMansions is a large part of the reason why so few Americans can afford to buy a home these days. The stock of "starter" homes keeps diminishing. :(

Phish N' Chimps : a U-Boat? how bout walk through it.

Tom V : A public relations person that does not want to be on camera.

Patrick Ryan : The public relations officer doesn’t want to be on camera?? Shouldn’t that be a requirement of the job?

William Morton Jr. : The main problem is that the land where the old driveway was located on the property of the New House use to be level with the driveway that is now getting flooded. The builders completely changed elevation of the yard of the New House. The elevation on the edge of the property should not have changed.

Joe Shmoe : It is already against code and illegal to drain water onto your neighbor's property. But the real problem is the driveway doesn't shed water. It's a pool. If I was the owner of the large house it would be cheapest for me to give them a drain. Even if I put in a small retaining wall, a foot high, they still would have the flooding problem. They just got away with the mistake for many years.

rick mack : This is happening a lot in my city as well, replacing smaller homes with much bigger ones

m m : Sue for property damage. Their drainage can't drain on to someone else's property and cause damage.

Brandon Rutherford : Build a retaining wall at the edge of the driveway and let the new house flood

Birdie Sam : Just because the house was built to "standards" doesn't make it right. Clearly the standard was not enough here. And more action needs to be taken. If the developer owned the house next door and saw the issue. It would have been fixed in order to even sell. But since it's not his property... It's not his problem. 🤦 Come on dude. Drop the $4000 on a proper in ground drainage system. It'll help your home value.

Eli S : I'd have a water pump spraying that water right on their front porch. "Hey, I think this is yours?"

Papa Bear : should have a 2% slope. Blame the mason who poured her driveway,

San Francisco : The new house is creating a nuisance. Regardless of "meeting all the codes" the property causing the run off has to correct it by making a French drain that goes to the street so that no water from the roof or the yard flows onto her property.

Brian Elton : That rain water build up is a fairly easy fix. Just a few thousand dollars would fix it. But the contractor who built that new house they should be responsible for that. Personally I think that's a lawsuit waiting to happen. And I believe that the owner next to the mcmansion has all the right here.

GhostLaughingMan : That's not a mcmansion but just a big house

marko cynamon : It’s not rocket science Sue and Have builder put In a diversion swale or drainage ditch....duh? Not news worthy

Sage Oldmann : People don’t don’t care if it doesn’t effect them

Joshua79C C : Not best size of lot for such a large house, look at how little lawn there is now! I seen such McMansions build on lots four times or more larger than this postage stamp lot, seriously sitting on a 1/3 rd to 1/5 th of an acre or a few thousand square foot of property.

M.B.A Music : 2:40 “Leaves Diane wet” Grate choice of words

Mike K. : i don't consider this house a mcmansion. it's not especially ugly (though not particularly attractive) like the usual mcmansion that's cobbled together with different housing styles, this one has a certain 'look'.

Google User : Welcome to McMurica'.

Penny Adams : These developers don't care about the people that live next door. They don't care if their approved build affects others. They only care about profits. The build is to code for that property, that's as much care they give, now on to profit.

Third3ye : I would find a way to pump that water back to their property, Screw that noise.

xsailor85 : It reminds me of what happened on King of the Hill when a McMansion came to their street.

stenbak88 : Did that dummy really say u-boat

Rowan Quinn : What's so hard about them adding a drain in the grass be nice and easy and everyone would be happy

MyNameIsNotImportant : The newer house looks higher than the old house. They probably raised the Land of the new house to prevent future flooding. I wouldn’t consider this house a McMansion

Callum Ray : “That house was erected last year...” Sooooo was my diiiiiiiick

Callum Ray : “The streets are pretty, the neighbors are nice...” Hiiiiiiiiiiiiii 😂😂😂

That guy : Stop building homes that havent even been sold .

Ruthless Reid : I would just place a pump in water and spray back at the house especially when shown for sale. I think it would be fixed really soon then.
