Water Floods South Burlington Basements

SOUTH BURLINGTON — The tidy residential neighborhoods near White Street in South Burlington seem far removed from the destructive flooding along the shores of Lake Champlain.

That is, until residents step into their basements.

Deb and Rich Lockwood’s basement on Barber Terrace is in shambles. Items are perched in disarray on pallets and boxes to keep them away from the wet floor. The room smells of mildew, even though most of the water that poured into the basement has dried up during the past few days.

“We are throwing out possessions that we’ve had forever,” Deb Lockwood said. She said the family has lived in the house for decades, and this is the first time the basement flooded.

The flooding has extended, residents say, to nearly every basement on quiet streets including Barber Terrace, Mills Avenue and Peterson Terrace. Many of the incidents are the first in memory.
