Sandbags removed at Leavenworth floodwall

LEAVENWORTH — After being in place for months, sandbags are being removed from behind the Riverfront Community Center.

The sandbags were put in place in March as the river approached a depth of more than 30 feet.

Sandbags were stacked around an existing floodwall. Leavenworth Public Works Director Mike McDonald said, at the time, there was concern that floodwaters could overtop the floodwall. So the sandbags were put in place to increase the elevation.

McDonald estimates about 200 tons of sand were used to fill the sandbags.

On March 23, the river reached 31.3 feet in Leavenworth. This marked the second worst flood on record for the city of Leavenworth.

The river reaches its flood stage for the Leavenworth area at a depth of 20 feet.

After the floodwaters began receding, the sandbags were left in place at the Riverfront Community Center because of concern the river would flood again.
