CITY OFFICIALS SAY PREPARATIONS ARE MOVING QUICKLY TO LIMIT DAMAGE FROM EXPECTED FLOODING IN RIVERSIDE FROM THE BIG SIOUX RIVER LATER THIS WEEK.

CITY MANAGER BOB PADMORE SAYS THERE ARE NO CONCERNS THAT OTHER LOCAL STREAMS MAY FLOOD LIKE IN 2011:


OC…THERE EITHER. :24

PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR JADE DUNDAS SAYS CONSTRUCTION THAT IS EXTENDING AN EARTHEN BERM BY 561 FEET IS UNDERWAY ON RIVER DRIVE:


OC…NOT CAUSE A PROBLEM. :24

DUNDAS SAYS THE CITY HAS SANDBAGS AVAILABLE FOR RESIDENTS IN THE POTENTIAL FLOOD AREA:


OC…THEIR OWN SANDBAGS. :20

THE FLOODGATES WILL BE CLOSED AS THE BIG SIOUX RISES, SO THE CITY WOULD HAVE TO PUMP OUT WATER IN A RAIN EVENT THIS WEEKEND.

PADMORE SAYS THIS WILL BE A SHORT LIVED FLOOD EVENT, WITH THE RIVER EXPECTED TO RECEDE WITHIN 48 HOURS AFTER IT CRESTS ON FRIDAY.
