Flood Damage Repairs on SeMo Rivers will Cost $1 Million

POPLAR BLUFF, MO - Flood damage to camp sites and structures along the Ozark National Scenic Riverways will cost nearly a million dollars to repair.

The national park area in southern Missouri protects a wild river system of the Current and Jacks Fork rivers.  The park has applied for $944,000 in federal aid for needed repairs.

Park personnel say that in a single March day, 11 inches of rain fell over the four counties that encompass the park, adding to already full waterways.

Severe flooding damaged and destroyed campsites, boat ramps and 12 to 15 park buildings.

Anyone planning to visit the park should call the headquarters office in Van Buren about potential closings.
