Two action items for the Upper Prairie/Silver/Moores Flood Control Project in northwest Grand Island were approved by the Central Platte Natural Resources District’s board of directors at their February meeting.
The board approved purchased of a real-time monitoring and data logging equipment for $30,368. The equipment consists of water level sensors, cameras, and rain gauge sensors to be placed at strategic locations throughout the project. The water level and rain gauge sensors will read water levels and precipitation once every 15 minutes with 96 readings per day, and the cameras will take 12 images per day during daylight hours. The NRD is working with partners to have a promotional event in downtown Grand Island this summer.
The board authorized an operation and maintenance manual for the Silver Creek Levee in connection with FEMA accreditation for Upper Prairie/Silver/ Moores Flood Control Project.
