City declares “State of Emergency” in Preparation for Spring Flooding

The City of Carver has posted a summary of the current state of flood preparation over at cityofcarver.com.

Briefly, there is a 40% chance that this year’s flood will surpass the record 1965 flood. The 1965 flood crested at 724 feet and our levee is 726.5 feet. For this reason, the city has begun preparations to add 4 to 6 feet to the levee.

Additionally, they have released a flood guide that answers many of the questions and concerns. The guide can be downloaded here.
