NORA SPRINGS, IA – Many communities are still assessing the damage caused by all the rain we received over the last few weeks. One town is concerned about one area in particular.
The levee in Nora Springs suffered more damaged than previously thought.
Once water levels had gone down, officials discovered it had broken.
The levee will need to have the clay rock and the fabric coverings replaced.
Nora Springs Mayor, George Andersen says while the floods of 2008 were much worse, it’ll be a while before they know the full extent of the damage.
Mayor Andersen said, “When they had to dig it all out and start from scratch, it was a little over $300,000. So this could be the same, a little more, a little less. I would hope a little less, but we really don’t know.”
Mayor Andersen says they’re currently in the process of getting bids to make the repairs. He hopes to start the project sometime this year.
