Corps Pays Back Sioux Falls $10M for Levees

September 19, 2013

Ten years after work started on the Sioux Falls, S.D., levee system, the city’s getting about $10 million from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

The public works director says the project was a partnership between the city and corps.

To ensure it was completed, the city advanced the money in 2009 after several years of little federal funding and changes to the city’s flood insurance rate maps. The corps now has received money to reimburse the city for that advancement.
