Millcreek supervisors discuss '100-year-flood,' Granada Apartments

ERIE, Pa. -- Millcreek Township Board of Supervisors discussed the Father’s Day Flood during a regular meeting Tuesday.

The supervisors said more than five inches of rain fell within five hours in some parts of the township.

The 100-year flood affected 124 residences and resulted in two structures being condemned.

Millcreek Township supervisor Brian McGrath said the township does not compensate for damage from sewer backups, but it has been been common practice to reimburse for sanitization costs.

The board also approved a settlement between the township and the owner of Granada Apartments, Granada Apartments LP, and its management company, Clover Management.

The $150,000 will reimburse costs to the township.
