City Cautions Drivers to avoid Flood Prone Streets and Intersections
The City of Columbia urges drivers to use caution when driving during severe weather. If you encounter a flooded street or intersection, turn around; do not attempt to drive through it. Water may be deeper than it appears and can hide many hazards (i.e. sharp objects, washed out road surfaces, electrical wires, chemicals, etc). A vehicle caught in swiftly moving water can be swept away in a matter of seconds. Twelve inches of water can float a car or small SUV and 18 inches of water can carry away large vehicles.
Local Teachers Eligible for Conservation Mini-Grants
The City of Columbia is now supporting a new mini-grant geared towards clean water student projects such as rain barrels, composting initiatives, litter clean-ups, rain gardens, erosion control, stream bank restoration, and more. Awards are competitive and proposals will be evaluated on the project’s water-quality impact, feasibility, student and community involvement, and educational outcomes.
