Flood Control Levees
Maintenance of the Levees
The flood control levees are maintained primarily by members of the Cemetery Division. There are levees on one bank of both the Pottawatomie and Marais Des Cygne rivers and pumping stations to eliminate surface water from retention ponds within the city during high river stages. Gates at openings in the levee may be closed during high water and an emergency operations plan implemented.

Routine maintenance responsibilities include mowing and maintenance of flood control levees, ground around storm water retention ponds and large open areas, and inspection and repair of pumping stations. The project is inspected annually by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
