|Wasena Park's new low-water bridge is covered in water and debris after heavy rain for two days.|
|Debris is creating a dam at the bridge.|
The Roanoke River Flood Reduction Project of several years ago. What could be a park-drenching flood in Wasena and Smith Parks is simply high water in the Roanoke River. Sure, it sinks the low-water bridges, but they are "low-water bridges." The deep cuts along the river's edge have provided additional places for the water to go and it is not threatening houses along the way.
Good job, council.
|Flood watching remains a popular recreation.|
