[ARCHIVED] Flood Information

The City of Cedar Falls is continuing to monitor river level projections and is continuing to work on flood preparedness procedures. Currently, the river level is projected to crest Saturday afternoon in Cedar Falls at 99.2 ft.

At this time, sand and sand bagging stations for Northern Cedar Falls residents have been located at 2806 Center Street, the corner of Lincoln St. & Leversee Rd, and at the Ice House Museum. 

Drinking water for residents in Northern Cedar Falls is available at the North Fire Station.  There is a hose on the outside of the building that can be accessed anytime, but residents will need to bring their own containers. 

Friday morning, Public Safety personnel will be reaching out door-to-door to residents in northern Cedar Falls that will be impacted by flooding.  They will be providing informational brochures and providing any other necessary information. Public Safety personnel will be assigned at the North Fire Station starting on Saturday morning. 

At this point in time, volunteers to help with sandbagging efforts in public areas are not being requested.
