Pumping Station Is Secured
Completely sand-bagged against the threat of Missouri river flood water is the Council Bluffs waterworks pumping station, located just a few feet away from the stream. Pumping equipment inside the station is located in deep concrete pits, well below floor level, and would be put out of service should water reach inside the plant. Supt. Franklin Jensen said pumps will be available to protect the plant against any seepage through the barricade.
