Turning flood affected wood into energy

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- The city of Cedar Rapids and the Linn County Solid Waste Agency will salvage wood from three flood-damaged homes that are owned by the city to study the cost and time it would take to grind it and burn the wood for energy.

City officials said the project will find out if salvaging the wood makes sense. The city will demolish 1200 homes damaged in last year's flood.
