January 11, 2020 - City crews are continuing to monitor this weekend's rain event. To divert flow away from neighborhoods, City Utilities' crews turned on a pump near Hartman Road and another on Wheaton Court earlier today. Forecasts are calling for river levels to crest at a moderate flood level on Monday afternoon. At this time, there are no city streets closed due to high water.
Residents wanting sandbags to protect their property can fill bags at the parking lot of the ASH Centre, 1701 Freeman St. and the Southwest Conservation Club, 5703 Bluffton Rd. Residents will need to bring a shovel to fill the bags.
