Floodwater leaves a mess behind

PEQUANNOCK - Floodwater swept through Pequannock last week, leaving streets underwater. The floodwater has now receded, but trash was left behind.

Homeowners say they have found neighbors' fences, plastic containers, garbage cans and huge logs in the wake of the flood this time around and in years past.

Al Fabrizio says trash has been piling up for years across the street from his house in a wooded area next to a park.

Fabrizio says the area is "township property and the least they could do is clean it up." Pequannock's mayor told News 12 New Jersey he will do all he can to help.

The mayor says he is asking for volunteers to help with the cleanup. He also says, "if we need to get some heavy equipment in there, I'll talk to the township manager and see what we can do about it."
