Volunteers Help Fill Potholes in Waterloo, Iowa

March 10, 2014

The streets of Waterloo, Iowa, are a bit smoother now thanks to the efforts of a group of volunteers who spent part of their weekend filling potholes.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports the volunteers filled about 400 potholes Saturday in their first weekend of work.

The volunteer pothole crew will help the city’s streets recover from this rough winter.

The volunteer crews have been used most every year since 1993 although they haven’t been needed after the last couple mild winters.

Scott Jordan organized the volunteer crews that focused on filling potholes around schools.

Fifteen-year-old Olivia Jordan joined her dad on the crew Saturday to help fix some of the pop-spilling potholes she’s encountered and give back to the community.
