St-Colomban clean-up will be long and costly

The mayor of St-Colomban says the clean up following floods earlier this week will take a lot of time, and a lot of money.

Life in the small Laurentian town of St-Colomban is slowly coming back to normal.

But the town's mayor Jean Dumais says they are asking the province to help pay for the cleanup.

He says the final bill will likely run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars and take the rest of the summer.

But additional costs will be incurred as much of the town's recently restored drainage system was also overwhelmed.

Some 80 millimetres of rain fell overnight between the 24th and 25th, damaging roads and flooding between 15 and 20 homes.
