The City of Rock Island is preparing for the rising Mississippi River.
At this time, there are several water pump discharge hoses that are placed across the Rock Island portion of the bike path. The hose locations are marked. Please use caution when crossing over the hoses.
City staff is implementing the flood strategy plan as the river rises which includes installing pumps and closing gatewells.
Rock Island follows the National Incident Management System procedures whenever faced with major weather challenges. The City’s Incident Command Team meets weekly and responds as needed to flooding.
