TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - The city of Tupelo is now working on phase one of a three-phase plan to fix the Westwind neighborhood’s flooding problem.
The subdivison has struggled with flooding in the streets that can rise up to knee deep.
This regularly occurs when heavy rain comes in and floods Ashley Street into Lauren Circle.
One resident says that this has been a problem for all 4 years he has lived in the neighborhood.
"The last few years when we get a big heavy flood, it's mainly down there on the other end of the street, it kind of starts here and works its way down here. Here we have a river, there, they have a pond. You can easily get ankle, knee deep," said Jason Clark.
Occording to the Tupelo Mayor Jason Shelton, the first phase is set to be done by the end of the month.
