Quad Cities may have dodged a bullet on flooding
March 29, 2011
The Quad Cities may have dodged a significant bullet when it comes to the expected river flooding. The river is expected to crest later in the week
, but only about a foot over flood stage. The National Weather Service notes that temperatures cooled a lot, which slowed the melting process upstream
and probably held back much of the anticipated flooding to a considerable degree.
Flooding could, of course, become a much more significant issue later this spring, since high river levels can be aggravated by new rainfall at any time. Preparation for flooding is critical, and one essential tool for managing flooding is portable pumping equipment
, like the reliable engine-driven models from Gorman-Rupp. Contact us
