KIFI Bridge Damaged by Seasonal Flood: March-April 2015

Damage visible to the KIFI floodplain bridge
Damage clearly visible to the rear section of the floodplain bridge at KIFI after the first pulse of the seasonal flood at the beginning of March 2015. This section of the bridge was not raised high enough and re-enforced with sement on the slope sides. This caused flood water to eat away the sides during flooding.

The level of water is rising again and will inundate the bridge again this week, the second week of April 2015. If the damage increase staff members will not be able to reach the boat launch or the pump station.
