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.




Nuisance Abatement
