TULSA, Okla. - The Army Corps of Engineers has released a draft report of the work needed on Tulsa’s levee system.
FOX23 News reported on some structural concerns of the levees after historic flooding in May.
The draft includes plans for 13 miles of filtered berm – a ridge made of loose rock meant to slow and filter water.
The Army Corps also recommends reconstruction of pump stations 1 through 7, and the construction of two detention ponds at the levee B tieback area.
A 30-day period of public comment began Monday. A public meeting is scheduled for Oct. 8 at the Case Community Center.
