Spring Flooding Effects In Dubuque

Counties in eastern Iowa continue to feel the effects of flooding. In Dubuque, public local campgrounds are just getting opened, which means revenue is down. Park Ranger Ryan Petty says the Conservation Department is estimating its’ lost about $75,000 this year. That’s from lost revenue and the costs to clean up the parks. Petty says flood cleanup at the end of July is not typical. Mud Lake is one of three campgrounds impacted by flooding from the Mississippi River. The other two are Finley’s Landing and Massey Marina. Finley’s Landing and Mud Lake are up and running again, although Petty says there’s still more lingering projects to get done. Parts of Massey Marina are still underwater. Petty says the river starts to creep into the park once it hits 14 feet. Only about one third of the camping sites are open right now.
