Crews were out Thursday to get rid of the water along Potter Road in Davison as construction continues to put in a new pipeline.

But as more rain is expected, residents are expecting more of this type of flooding.

In addition to the water collecting in ditches and yards of area homes, drivers are forced to keep their speeds low, swerving to avoid the many pot holes along the road.

Downed powerlines even hang in front of driveways.

All this work is to put in a 42-inch pipeline to run parallel to the existing 72-inch pipeline.

Once completed it will deliver water from the Great Lakes Water Authority to Flint residents.

The project is slated to be completed in late September or October, and the Genesee County Drain Commission has said they will make repairs to roads and right of ways disrupted by the construction.

Residents say that date can't come soon enough.

Now if more flooding happens crews say they will be back out to pump once again to keep construction going and to ease residents headaches.
