Cedar Rapids to raise wellheads

Posted:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The City of Cedar Rapids is raising its water wells to protect against future flooding. Wellheads will be raised north and west of downtown.

In 2008, floodwaters topped the wells nearly taking out the city's drinking water system.

The cost will be about $2.1 million.
