Cedar Rapids looks at the next stage in flood mitigation
August 29, 2008
The city of Cedar Rapids is reviewing the recommendations
it has received from engineering consultants who want the city to look at new ways of mitigating the impact of future floods. After this year's catastrophic flooding
in Iowa's second-largest city, the consultants have recommended at least four different options for preventing a recurrence, including diversion channels and creeks for the Cedar River, larger levees and flood walls, expanded floodplains, and faster movement of floodwaters through the city.
