Police: More than two feet of water found in vacant Monroe home’s basement

Two-and-a-half feet of water was found in the basement of a temporarily vacant residence on Highland Drive on Feb. 10.

Police logoOn that afternoon, a woman who lives in an adjoining home at the High Meadows senior citizen community called to report a half inch of water had accumulated in her basement.

It was determined the water might be coming from the next-door residence, whose owner had been away for an extended period.

The daughter of the next-door residence’s owner gave verbal permission to the police to force open the door to check on the situation.

Once inside, officers and Stevenson Volunteer Fire Department members discovered two-and-a-half feet of water in that basement.

The High Meadows superintendent was able to shut off the water in the unit, working with Stevenson firefighters.
