Missouri River flooding gets worse
June 1, 2011
A story in today's Omaha World-Herald describes the rising floodwaters
threatening the town of Sloan, Iowa
, as well as many other communities and facilities, including the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Station
, located about 20 miles upstream from Omaha
. The worst part of the story is that the floods are going to get much worse
long before they get better. The Woodbury County Board of Supervisors -- whose county includes Sloan as well as Sioux City -- have made an emergency allocation of $200,000
to help with flooding costs.
We can help you with portable dams
, which work much better and faster than sandbag levees, and with sluice gates
and other gates for floodwater control. Please feel free to contact us
with your questions.
