After a downpour on Wednesday evening Susan Adams stands on her flooded driveway at her Crystal Lake home on Pine Street Thursday, June 29, 2017. Residents living in the block immediately southeast of the Route 14 and West Crystal Lake Avenue intersection are frustrated with the city for not finding a solution to the flooding problem, which has cost them money and left them without access to their backyards for much of the summer. However, the city has been denied grant money to help fund a solution.
