An Ashfield-Colborne-Wawanosh resident is asking his local council to address a flooding problem on his property. Shawn Drennan told council water from property owned by K-2 Wind Energy is flooding his property. Drennan further claims K-2 dug a ditch to take excess water from their property to the road allowance and from there it flowed on to his property.
He also points out under the Drainage Act it is illegal to collect and direct drainage water and K-2 was told specifically by the township not to build a ditch that would direct water onto the road allowance and K-2 has ignored both directives. Drennan has asked council to put a stop-work order on the property until the drainage issue and subsequent flooding on his property is addressed.
