Flood mitigation work outside the Lied Center will wrap up soon. A system of earthen berms and concrete fortified gateways were installed to protect the building from flood water. Similar to the mitigation measures at the Iowa State Center, interlocking aluminum logs will be inserted at two gateways near the west building entrance (both sides of one gateway are pictured above) and a gateway near the southeast entrance when needed. Campus crews will finish site preparations in the coming days, including hydroseed application to the berms. Photos by Bob Elbert.
