SOUTH BEND – Monday night, South Bend homeowners dealing with flooding issues because of a plant closing will take a new approach to try and get help from the city.
They plan on attending the Common Council meeting to ask Mayor Pete Buttigieg to get more involved.
For months, dozens of homeowners have been dealing with groundwater problems and flooded basements.
The New Energy Ethanol plant shut down in November, sending water levels up because the facility is no longer using pumps.
The mayor's office is in talks with the new owners of the building to discuss possibly re-starting those pumps.
