Official Update: Flood Recovery

As a reminder, all the evacuations have been lifted and all portions of the sewer system are now operational.

Most of the streets are now clear of water. However, there are still some streets that remain impassable by smaller vehicles. Â

As the city transitions into recovery mode, the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) will be open at 8 A.M tomorrow, September 9th and then close at 5 P.M. Starting on Monday, September 11th City Hall will resume its normal operating hours as the city works through the recovery process.

The Richwood Volunteer Fire Department and Police Department would like to provide a meal to the residents tomorrow as everyone works hard to begin cleaning up after the flooding. Tomorrow from 11 A.M. to 2 P.M. residents can stop by Polk Elementary for hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, and water.

Updates will be provided as additional information becomes available. If you have any questions, you can call City Hall at (979) 265-2082.
