Press release from the City:
The City is experiencing high water and surface level flooding (street flooding) in neighborhoods throughout town.
All of the City’s pumps were placed in neighborhoods around town last night and additional pumps were shipped in from two different states. They are pumping to alleviate basement back-ups.
City crews are monitoring river levels and, at this time, no homes along our rivers are in danger of flooding.
Crews from Public Works and City Utilities spent the night monitoring the situation and will work around the clock until the threat is over.
If residents see high water on streets they should call 3-1-1 to report the situation. Main thoroughfares are the top priority and then secondary and residential streets.
The City reminds motorists not to drive into high water. If motorists come upon high water they should turn around and find an alternate route. Motorists should not attempt to go through high water.
