City of Huntington
PA-John W. Barrett J-Darrell Pratt
* The plaintiffs claim the City of Huntington failed to perform maintenance on the storm water drainage system along Krouts Creek in the Westmoreland portion of the city which lies in Wayne County. On July 13 and July 14, 2006 heavy rains caused debris to build up in the trash rack of the drainage system and act as a dam, the plaintiffs allege. The water backed up, overflowed its banks and ran onto the property of the plaintiffs. The trash rack was not cleared and a repeat flood occurred on August 30 and August 31. The plaintiffs are suing for preliminary and permanent injunctive relief and compensatory damages.
