County Continues Tabulating Flood Damage

August 14, 2019 9:29am

Buena Vista County continues working on information to send to FEMA concerning flood damage this spring.

County engineer Bret Wilkinson says information on debris removal has already been turned in to FEMA, and once approved, he expects payment from FEMA will come in a few weeks. Wilkinson says repairs to gravel roads are the biggest category, where a lot of repairs were made, and they're still working on completing that documentation. County conservation director Greg Johnson is still waiting on getting final numbers on damage to the Linn Grove dam.


Wilkinson says crushing gravel continues at the Hayes pit south of Storm Lake, probably through next week. That gravel will then be hauled to cover gravel roads in Maple Valley township. Secondary road crews continue working on driveways, culverts, and mowing.
