Governor Culver asks for flood management reviews

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Governor Chet Culver is asking federal officials to look into flood management plans at Iowa's four reservoirs.

The Governor has asked the President to include funding for studies into the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' budget for the 2012 fiscal year.

Those reviews could cost upwards of $8 million and last up to three years.

The operating plans for the reservoirs at Saylorville, Coralville, Red Rock and Rathbun have not changed significantly for decades in some cases.
