Money Approved For Final Repairs To Marseilles Dam

Posted by wlpo on March 27, 2014

Almost a full year after the record setting flood, repairs still continue at the Marseilles Dam.

Through the help of Congressman Adam Kinzinger, the Army Corps of Engineers is releasing $35 million for phase two of the repairs. This will essentially finish repairs at the dam after several barges slammed into it last April.

Several property owners, the city of Marseilles and Marseilles Elementary School District are suing Ingram Barge Company of Tennessee saying their barges contributed to the costly flood.
