Plans push forward for La Salle County Nursing Home flood wall

Posted by wlpo on January 19, 2015

Plans to build a flood wall protecting the La Salle County Nursing Home are moving forward.

The La Salle County Board has hired North Central Illinois Council of Governments for $30,000 to handle the paperwork involved in getting a $450,000 grant. The plan is to build a flood wall along the Illinois River on the south side of the nursing home in Ottawa extending to Dee Bennett Road.

The total cost of the flood wall is expected to exceed one million dollars. The nursing home has been evacuated three times in the last five years because of flooding.
