$5 million approved for flood recovery

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- More than $5 million has been approved for two key flood recovery projects.  The conservation-related efforts include repairing washouts on the Heritage trail surface in Dubuque County and replacing the Evansdale Bridge in Black Hawk County.

The Dubuque County conservation board will receive just under $3 million of that to repair washouts on the Heritage Trail.

The Black Hawk county conservation board will get almost $2.25 million to rebuild the Evansdale bridge.

These efforts are part of an estimated 10,600 projects under the State/FEMA Public Assistance program.
