By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Still battling flooding issues, Dougherty County public works is taking steps to prevent future problems.

The department has come up with nearly 50 areas where drainage needs to be improved. Most are isolated spots, but some have drainage issues from the river and creeks in the county.

Public Works Director Larry Cook said, "We've got 49 on the table now that we're trying to work with to alleviate some of the flooding in those areas."

Once they finalize the list and come up with design proposals, public works will take them to county commissioners to recommend changes. That will take place in about a month.
