Leavenworth Closes Brush Site, Airfield and Finishes Sandbagging | Environment
With the Missouri River projected to reach approximately 26 feet by this weekend, the City of Leavenworth is closing down its City Brush Site, Sherman Army Airfield and is finishing its preliminary sandbagging efforts around the Riverfront Community Center and Wastewater Treatment Plant this week.
The flood stage is currently just above 23 feet, but the National Weather Service and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers are predicting for levels to rise three feet by Saturday, which is expected to inundate the Brush Site located at 1803 S. 2nd Street and the Airport on Fort Leavenworth.
Residents are instructed to take their brush to the County Transfer Station/Recycling Center at 136th Street and Gilman Road starting Wednesday, June 22. For hours of operation and disposal fees, visit http://www.leavenworthcounty.org/sw/sw.asp.
