Flood Control Maintenance
The Norfolk Flood Protection Project was constructed in 1968. The
project is approximately 4 miles in length. It lies north of the
city and proceeds southeasterly around the east side of town.
Maintenance consists of mowing, erosion protection, structure
inspection, debris removal and observation during flooding.
Maintenance costs are about $25,000 per year. A large part of mowing
is under private contract.
