More snow today, and a worse flood outlook for the spring
February 19, 2010

Even more snow is falling in a record-breaking winter for Iowa; we've now had double the normal amount of snow since January 1st, and even if not another flake of snow fell for the rest of the year, we'd still have experienced the 8th snowiest winter in history. The prospect of serious spring flooding seems to be growing by the minute, so we have to advise all of our clients and friends to be ready for the coming flooding. Whether that requires checking their sluice gates for free and unimpeded operation, checking the oil in their portable flood pumps, or making sure that their aeration basins are ready for high flows in the spring, there's lots of work to be done in advance of the almost-certain flooding.
