Mayville City Crews Prepare for More Flash Flooding

Facing a Flash Flood Watch from the Nation Weather Service Wednesday Mayville City officials are taking precautions to prevent damage just two weeks after flooding prompted sandbags at some city schools.  

"We want to make sure our creeks stay open. Hopefully we don't have the problems we had last time," Jack Hurst, Mayville Street Superintendent said. "We have our full crew on it. Hopefully we don't need any help this time."

Public Works crews used the morning to move backhoes to lift debris out of culverts and around the city dams.

The dams flood gates have remained open since the city saw nine inches of rain just two weeks ago. 

 "The big part is lowering our river to keep it lower so when the water comes in it has a place to go instead of backing up," Hurst said. "If we can keep that down we'll be in pretty good shape."

Law enforcement tells CBS 58 they would be active on the weather until the status by the National Weather Service is increased to a warning.
