"Huge gap" in funding still slows flood recovery
June 11, 2009
The head of the Rebuild Iowa Office
says that about $2 billion has been committed to flood recovery in Iowa, but that leaves an $8 billion gap
to the overall damage total. Fortunately, the estimated damage was less than half
of the inflation-adjusted total damage from the Floods of 1993, but the two events together confirm the importance of adequate flood mitigation and protection. We have assisted a growing list of communities with portable pumping stations
for flood mitigation, among many other useful products.
