SOUTH BEND – If you're a homeowner affected by flooding caused by the shutdown of a plant on South Bend's southwest side, you may want to attend a meeting this afternoon.
The city says it's not responsible or liable to fix the problem, but leaders are offering help.
They say Housing and Urban Development and FEMA have been contacted for possible assistance as well as nonprofit agencies.
The New Energy ethanol plant used 2 million gallons of water a day during production.
Now that it's shutdown, unused water has caused the water table to rise.
South Bend leaders will hold a meeting at 3:30 p.m. Monday at the County-City building downtown to discuss the issue further.
