Solution sought for frequent flooding in Harriston

Harriston has a water problem. The town has seen several floods over the years, and now they’re looking for a solution.
Ten options have come from public consultations ranging in cost from $2.5 to $25 million.
One of the options includes diverting the Maitland River around the town. That option would cost $23 million.
The town’s mayor, George Bridge, says he’s concerned that if they don’t do something, Harriston residents “in the flood plain” may soon not be able to get insurance.
