I am the last house at the bottom of an incline on a street with a cul de sac. So the far right side of my property forms about half of the cul de sac. There is a creek that surrounds my house. There is a greenway where people can run/walk etc across from my creek. The city decided to build a wood bridge (walkway) that connects the cul de sac to the greenway. Yesterday we had a flashflood. The walkway ended up acting as a dam to the creek (that turned into a gushing river due to rain) and it finally gave way and the water uprooted it (so now the walkway is totally displaced and lodged downstream). When the water uprooted the walkway the backed- up water gushed into my yard and nearly caused my house to flood. My question is can I hold the city liable for constructing a walkway that can cause my house to flood due to their engineering and the proximity of my house in relation to the walkway?
