Broken drain pipe blamed for flooding at city hall




Rainwater seeped into Greenwood’s freshly renovated city building, soaking carpet and baseboards last week after a pipe got clogged.

A drain pipe, which a contractor cut to allow for building a new sidewalk at the new city hall, got clogged with rocks when heavy rain fell during a storm May 21, deputy mayor Terry McLaughlin said.

Water came in under a door on the north side of the building, flowed through a hallway and wet the carpet in the building’s new medical clinic offices, he said.
