Major Levee Seepage Repair May Be Final Step toward Vincennes Levee Certification

Vincennes City officials feel they are near the end of the process toward certifying the City Levee on FEMA’s flood maps. Vincennes Mayor Joe Yochum brought up a needed levee seepage project that could happen in the mid-summer to early fall.
Vincennes Water Utilities Kirk Bouchie says the coming project is the final brick in the wall toward levee certification.

The estimated top-end price for the project is around five million dollars. However, City officials believe there are various ways to significantly lower the price for the project. The Vincennes U-S-B will contract out the project in the months to come. The flood map survey for Knox County is expected in 2020.
