2019 Flood UAV Images

2019_flood_pre_post_imageryThis imagery was collected as part of the City of Yankton’s effort to assess damage from the recent flooding event, and to prepare for anticipated Federal Emergency Management Agency Public Assistance funding.  The goal of providing this imagery to the public is to help citizens understand the scope of damage while discouraging anyone from visiting the area along Marne Creek. 

The trail is closed, and will remained closed to the public for the foreseeable future.  Sections of the trail are washed out, and in other areas mud, silt, and debris are covering the concrete.  There are areas of manicured turf or sidewalk that look safe, but undermining has occurred and those edges may fall into the creek with additional weight as people walk on them to get a “better” look.  More erosion is occurring as the frost comes out of the ground and areas being held up by frozen ground are currently falling into the creek.  As normal spring rains occur, there will likely be even more erosion.

Barriers are in place, orange safety fence has been erected, and no trespassing signs have been posted along the trail.  Please understand that according to South Dakota Codified Law 22-35-6 entering or refusing to leave property after notice is a misdemeanor.  The Yankton Police Department will enforce this law as a matter of public safety.  The City of Yankton thanks all citizens and avid trail users for their cooperation. For more information, please call the Park and Recreation Department at 668-5231.
