Lending a Helping Hand to the City of Fort Lauderdale

A shout-out to BSU’s Art Rodriguez and James Morris, who volunteered in Fort Lauderdale after flooding that occurred in late April, caused by two feet of rain that occurred in just one hour. After many of Fort Lauderdale’s streets turned into lakes, there was a call put out to utilities for mutual aid that BSU did not hesitate to answer.
 
Art and James took a vac truck to the area to help pump out stormwater from flooded communities. They worked around the clock alongside crews from 14 different utilities that responded to the call for help.
 
BSU pumped about 112 truckloads of water which totaled approximately 500,000 gallons, clearing the way to ensure residents could return to their homes. After four days, Art and James returned to Bonita Springs. Their hard work made a difference at a time when a helping hand was desperately needed, and we could not be more proud!
