University of Iowa starts removing flood protection, more than a month after scare | TheGazette

More than a month after Iowa City officials closed Dubuque Street in anticipation of flooding along the Iowa River, the University of Iowa has begun the process of removing flood protection across campus.

Rod Lehnertz, director of Planning Design and Construction at the UI, said the decision to remove flood protection came after consistent communication with the Army Corps of Engineers over the water levels on the Iowa River and the Coralville Reservoir. Now that those levels have stabilized, the barriers can come down.
