ASHMORE -- A homeowner near the Embarras River is frustrated with IDOT. Roger Lindermuth says his property is flooding because of the changes it made to a bridge.

It dug a canal near his home. He says, IDOT promised the canal would stop his home from flooding, but this weekend, the water levels rose and flooded his property.

Lundermuth says his equipment was damaged. He plans to talk to a state representative about the issue.
