Nagel Drainage District

Iowa | Water

Overview

ISG helped the Nagel Drainage District coordinate construction for the setting back of levees.


Opportunity

Two high water events required levees to be set back along the banks of the district.

Solution

After erosion occurred from two high water events in 2010, ISG was called in to act as drainage engineer and ultimately a request was submitted for rehabilitation assistance from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). An $18.7 million project was approved by the USACE that involved the setback of over four miles of existing levees along both banks of the district facility. ISG coordinated construction administration, acquired additional right-of-way, located an adequate soil borrow source, and traced crop damages outside the newly acquired right-of-way for payment by the district.
