Corps Will Spend $1.8M on Nebraska Flood Repairs

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is planning to spend $1.8 million to repair the flood-defense network around Omaha, Neb.

The repairs being made around Omaha are part of the work being done along the Missouri River to prepare for spring. Last year’s historic flooding along the river damaged many of the levees and drainage ditches and other structures along the river.

The corps says this $1.8 million contract will repair several of the drainage structures around the city and Eppley Airfield.

The contractor will also inspect Omaha’s flood wall to determine what other repairs are needed.
