Flowing spring and water puddles

In Paola, a block of apartments was built next to a reservoir. Every time it rains, the lower levels of the building are flooded as rain water seeps through the rocks. A water pump is used to pump out water directly into the street, creating a hazard for passing cars and pedestrians. This waste of rain water could have been prevented with some planning before the building was made. The nearby outlets of the reservoir could have been cleaned and connected to the building’s waterworks system for water provision of the block of apartments.
