Dilemma #5 - The Floodwaters

The city’s river runs high today, spilling over the old concrete banks in some places. Sheets of water pool across the streets as the river seeks other paths to the ocean. The newcomers from the flooded district seem encouraged by this turn of events, and urge district leaders to let the water take its course, saying that they could not continue to live in a community that did not respect the wishes of the river.

Do the Districts ignore this petition and attend to their local flood defences, or seek counsel from the newcomers?

Lendunistus’s action isn’t valid here per “A District may React to the oldest Ongoing Dilemma that they haven’t already Reacted to…” - the previous Dilemma (the Crows) was still ongoing at the time.
