The heavy rains of late-June and the resulting June 28 flooding of Little Falls has raised questions and concerns about the underground infrastructure of the city.
Probably no one knows more about this infrastructure than local engineer Tony Carlisto. Carlisto will be the guest speaker at the 7 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24, Little Falls Historical Society monthly meeting. The meeting will take place at the WCA, 534 Garden St.
Carlisto promises to “shed a lot of light” on what lies beneath the streets. He will discuss underground creeks and the damage caused by the cascading waters that temporarily overwhelmed the city’s infrastructure and caused over a $1 million in damage to streets and buildings.
Seating at the WCA is limited. Carlisto’s presentation will be proceeded by a business meeting of the historical society.
The historical society is also conducting a $10 per ticket 50/50 raffle to help pay for its recently installed central air conditioning system. First prize is $750 and second prize is $250 with other prizes being gift certificates to various local establishments. The air conditioning system is necessary to help preserve museum historic papers and other artifacts. Only a limited number of tickets will be sold.
