Flood Education and Outreach

Flood Education and Outreach

The city's Flood Plain Managers and Public Works department provide resources throughout the year to help property owner's understand their flood risk and ways to reduce their flood risk.  This is often through direct mailing or at community meetings.  One such opportunity is coming up - LEAP into Flood Preparedness, Sat Feb 29, 9 am to 2 pm, Modern Woodmen Park.

Community Planning and Economic Development's Flood Plain Managers are always happy to assist private property owners with questions about flood proofing and development in the floodplain.  Our Floodplain Managers can be reached by calling 563.326.7765 during office hours, or by e-mailing
