Flood-recovery projects are moving forward following a meeting of city officials on Sept. 23 that discussed the process.

The Gateway Project comprises elevations to Dubuque Street and the Park Road bridge reconstruction and is one of the bigger flood-renovation projects.

The Wastewater Treatment Consolidation Project, also big, involves consolidation of the north water-treatment plant, which was destroyed by the flood, with the south water-treatment plant.

The environmental impacts of the project are being assessed through the National Environmental Policy Act. After that is done, city officials will begin looking at final designs.

Construction is projected to begin in 2013 or 2014, said Rick Fosse, the director of the Iowa City Public Works.
