Easement complicates flood project

A perpetual easement may put a damper on plans to fix a flooding problem near Harmony Lake.
The Mercer County Water Resource Board met March 14 for an update on a study that would control flooding approximately seven miles north of Hazen. The project was named the Mercer County Road 27 Flood Control study to prevent flooding over the highway. The board unanimously approved it as a cost-share project.
