Flooding threat poses vexing problem to Nall Hills neighborhood, Overland Park engineers

An engineering study recommended the eventual demolition of dozens of homes along the Indian Creek channel in the Nall Hills neighborhood.

For residents along Indian Creek in the Nall Hills neighborhood, the beginning of spring rainy season this year will bring a sense of unease. Will this be a normal year, or will it bring a repeat of 2017, when two torrential storms caused the creek to overflow, flooding homes and streets?

The neighborhood asked Overland Park city engineers for help that year. This year they got good news and bad news.
