Just a few weeks after FEMA representatives surveyed residential flood damage in Macomb, they're coming back again next week to survey public property flood damage.
FEMA will be in Macomb to assess all public property flood damage on June 24. Macomb Mayor Mike Inman says the city has already asked for assistance repairing flood damage to its water treatment plant.
"When the La Moine River came up so close to the treatment plant there was some infiltration in one of those tanks by river water, we made initial assessment of that damage and reported that to FEMA," said Inman.
Inman says the plant suffered $230,000 worth of damage to portions of it's piping and it needs to be fixed quickly. Inman says the city has also applied for a $200,000 grant from the state to help meet the cost.
