Flood Mitigation

River Town Mayors Call For Resilience Funds.........

 

This past week, the United States moved towards the creation of a Resilience Revolving Loan Fund for state and local governments, which is reportedly one of the most valuable resilience tools available from the federal government.

 

The legislation would allow states to offer cities and counties low-interest loans for disaster mitigation projects, such as the creation or restoration of natural infrastructure.

 

During a recent virtual meeting of the Mississippi River Cities and Towns Initiative, Grafton Mayor Rick Eberlin said that the fund would help out with restoring natural flood mitigation structures such as wetlands, marshes and reconnecting rivers with their floodplains........

Port Plans Proceeding For Cairo, Western Kentucky........

 

A pair of port projects along the Mississippi River near the confluence with the Ohio River are proceeding, with the Alexander-Cairo Port in Illinois expected to break ground as soon as late spring.

 

Earlier this month, the Illinois Department of Transportation formerly allocated the first $4 million of the $40 million promised by the state for the Alexander-Cairo Port District.  The $4 million will cover the cost of the remaining engineering, design and site clearing fees.

 

Just downriver from Cairo and the confluence, plans for the Western Kentucky Riverport Authority are proceeding as well, with the economic feasibility study for the port being approximately halfway completed.  Consultant on the project, Bill Miller, expects that the study will be wrapped up during the first quarter of 2021........

Mercury Marine Introduces Forward-Facing Bravo 4 S For Wakesurf Boats........

 

Back in August, Mercury Marine introduced their MerCruiser Bravo Four S forward facing drive, which is intended for the wildly popular sterndrive wakesurf boat market. 

 

Dan Ryks, category manager for sterndrive and inboard propulsion for Mercury Marine says that the wakesurfing market is continuing to be popular and something that consumers want to do.  He adds that the Bravo Four S is positioned exactly where they expected it to be.

 

The Bravo Four S is a sterndrive with dual forward facing propellers, which end up under the bottom of the boat, which gives improved handling characteristics.  The drive is paired with enhanced Smart Two digital controls that are integrated with the vessel's wake and ballast systems........

Hi Bill!
We have the foundation built!!! Unfortunately, since lumber prices are so high right now we are putting a hold on the build. Hoping all of this ends soon so we can get back to it.

Foundation work started

"The plan is to keep it in the same location, maybe a little closer to the river and up about 7 ft higher. The building will be just a little smaller with a bigger deck."
