Cedar Rapids Dumps More Than 100 Tons of Flood Debris

By Forrest Saunders

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa — The city has cleaned up tons of debris after flash flooding two weeks ago, but there’s still more to go.

The city reports more than 630 homes have registered damaged. Crews have hauled about 140 tons of flood debris to the dump.

Officials expect crews will complete their initial pass through the city by Tuesday. They’ll make return visits after that.

“There are still a number of properties on our lists that haven’t set items out. We’re asking everyone with water and sewer damage property to call us,” said Megan Murphy, the city’s utilities communications coordinator.

The city says to get flood debris picked up people need to first register their properties by three p.m. Monday. The number to call is (319) 286-5897.
