FREMONT, Neb. (KMTV) — As we saw this weekend with flooding concerns in areas near Fremont, the threat of more water remains something residents are keeping an eye on. Those in the business of fixing basements have been busy ever since March 2019 and now with this latest round of rising water, their phones are ringing again.

"It's heartbreaking, going back and looking at some of this stuff," said Paul Doran of PDC Construction. Doran and his company have been repairing basements around Fremont after the March 2019 flood. With this latest threat of rising water, his work motto is being put to the test.

"I've had a motto do it right the first time so you don't have to do it twice. Well, here I am, if it comes up any further I'm going to have to do some of my work twice," said Doran. He said he's already got some calls from those impacted by this last stretch of flooding near Fremont.

Others are waiting on repairs, such as Kathy Nattress of Fremont. "Scared, scared because I don't know what's going to happen and if we'll have further damage done or not."

Doran expects another busy year in 2020, and is ready to help if needed. "Two years in a row, I feel it's my duty, as a community, to come together and help people."
