So where is that 76 acres of floodwater supposed to go now?

To the editor,
I'm watching the "progress" on Tenney Mountain highway bank and fast food restaurant relocation construction. So let me get this right — with recommendation of the Plymouth Planning Board, the Town of Plymouth voted to fill in (raise above flood stage) an additional 76 acres of flood plain, effectively removing 76 acres from the flood plain.
So now where will this 76 acres of floodwater go? I suppose the next big Baker River flood we can blame on global warming and not on the fact that we are filling in the flood plain.
