URGENT NOTICES: Minor Flooding Occurring Along Walnut Creek in Clive

CLIVE, Iowa – Due to heavy rainfall last night Clive is experiencing some minor flooding along Walnut Creek.  The City expects the creek to crest this morning at a level below 9.5 feet, which may result in minor roadway flooding along Swanson Blvd.  Public Works is currently monitoring the roadway and will close Swanson Blvd in the area of 92nd Ct if flood waters begin to cover the street.

With rain in the forecast on Friday evening there is potential for additionally flooding to occur.  The City would advise residents who live along the creek to be aware of coming storms and the potential for increased flooding.

1,000 Books Before Kindergarten
1,000 Books Before Kindergarten is an ongoing reading program to encourage parents and caregivers to read 1,000 books with their children before they enter school. The program is based on research showing that the more children ages 0-5 hear books read to them, the more prepared they will be to learn to read in kindergarten. Parents sign up for the program at the library and receive reading journals to track how many books they and others read to their children. Once certain reading milestones have been reached, the library rewards that accomplishment with a prize. This program is open to any child (baby-preschooler) who is not yet in kindergarten.
