UPDATED MAPS

Previously, our maps included data reflecting the presence of the Hydroelectric Dam and the Little Dam in the Des Moines River. With the recent removal of both dams, City staff and McClure Engineering collaborated today to remap and assess the potential impact of the projected 19.5 crest in Fort Dodge. Using the data and technology available, the maps below are the results of their efforts. Properties within the pink lines on the map may be affected. Please prepare accordingly.

Sandbag stations are available at Ave B & M St, Hydro-Electric Park and Amigos. A huge thank you to everyone and all the organizations who braved the heat to help your fellow Fort Dodgers. There are still opportunities to help at the sandbagging stations - no need to reach out, just show up.Photos from City of Fort Dodge Government s post
