DNR sets floodplain plans meeting

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- The Iowa DNR will hold meetings to gather input for more comprehensive floodplain maps.  Many communities have outdated maps or no maps at all.  Officials say the new maps will more accurately indicate the extent of flooding to within inches of elevation instead of the current 5-10 foot elevation.  The first meeting is planned for Nov. 16 in Clear Lake. The others will be on Nov. 16 in Spencer; Nov. 17 in Des Moines and Atlantic; and in Washington and Independence on Nov. 18.
