$2 million to repair Vincennes flood levees


VINCENNES, Ind. (WTHI) – The City of Vincennes faces more than $2 million in work to repair the Wabash River flood levees.

That may sound like a lot, but it is actually less than what officials previously projected for the work. City leaders stated the repairs are needed before the levees can be recertified with the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

The city has already spent around $4 million on recent levee projects.

Officials say the previous projection was near $30 million.
