Several residents of Glen Tualatin Mobile Park in Beaverton expressed their frustrations after they woke up to a flooded driveway on Thanksgiving.

Resident John Stickney said water Thursday morning was almost to his knee and that his driveway looked like a lake.

“I’ve been here for five years and every year this happens,” Stickney said. “It floods, floods, floods. I fix it, fix it and fix it.”

In December of 2015, heavy rains also flooded the park.

Michael Muchmore said he’s lived at Glen Tualatin for two years and is fed up with the floods.

“I’ve had to redo my yard,” he said. “This would the fifth time.”

Both Muchmore and Stickney said the problem is a clogged drain.

“I just want normal, regular maintenance,” Muchmore said. “I’m fed up with it. I’m ready to go to an attorney and see what we can do about getting about this place fixed properly”

FOX 12 reached out to the onsite manager who didn’t comment on the situation. There was also no response from the property management company that operates the park.
