Coralville Erecting Temporary Flood Barrier

Updated: Friday, May 31 2013, 07:59 AM CDT
CORALVILLE, Iowa (AP) -- Coralville officials say a new, sand-filled tube barrier will be protecting businesses south of Clear Creek from potential flooding.
   Work began Thursday on the temporary protection. The tubes will stand 4 feet tall when completed and will run about 1,500 feet along the south of the creek.  Officials weren't certain how many feet of the tubing would be needed on the north side of the creek.
   Storm sewers south of U.S. Highway 6 will be plugged to prevent water from backing up.
