  • Tree clearing on the southwest section of levee referred to as 3B.


The Butler Tarkington Neighborhood Association will hold a public meeting to discuss the Army Corps of Engineers' ongoing levee-building and flood management projects from 6-8pm tonight, June 24th, at Butler's Jordan Hall, Room 141.

The Corps' Louisville District has completed and released for public comment the final environmental impact statement for its Indianapolis North Flood Damage Reduction Project.

The 30-day comment period closes on Monday, July 8, 2013.

The project is causing widespread consternation among Rocky Ripple. Issues include fears that Rocky Ripple will be excluded from the project's flood protections, and, if so, that property values and safety issues would result. (The Corps insists that it would not pursue a project that would endanger residents.) Other concerns focus on the effects the building levee-building project could have on Central Canal.
