Another reason to bid 2008 good riddance
January 7, 2009

2008 was a pretty disastrous year for the Upper Midwest, with floods taking out the Mason City water plant and the Cedar Rapids wastewater plant, nearly wiping out the Cedar Rapids water plant, and putting the Grand Island wastewater plant under serious strain. Many other communities, and many sectors beyond the water and wastewater industry, were affected. And yet the year just couldn't go away peacefully: A last-minute warm-up put Chicago under the threat of flash flooding as ice jams and snowmelt joined forces on area streams and rivers, just months after late summer flooding that made a wreck of the nation's third-largest metropolis. It was for some parts of the Midwest the wettest year on record.
