The US Army Corps of Engineers on Tuesday, May 26, toured four areas around Clear and Grass lakes where town of Milton residents have been battling flooding for over a year. 

After learning from residents about property damage and their concerns about safety, State Rep. Don Vruwink said he and Town of Milton Board Chairman Bryan Meyer asked the engineers to visit the area to help determine causes of flooding and develop solutions for water management. 

A barricade is in place along Clear Lake Road where water from Grass Lake has flooded the roadway, Meyer said. Grass Lake has also begun overflowing its basin onto the shoulder of State Highway 59, Vruwink said. 

Following are photos taken Friday, May 29, of flooded areas along Clear Lake Road.
