Geneva Levee Restoration

Officials say the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers performed a check list before turning the $12-million Geneva levee over to the city.

Geneva City Clerk Lisa Johnson says the city and the Army Corps have worked closely together in ironing out problems.

There were a few cases of missing bolts on several of the flood gates, but everything is expected to be repaired before the transfer of control and maintained takes place.

In the late 1990's, Alabama U.S. Sentator Richard Shelby was credited with getting federal money for the restoration of both the Geneva and Elba levees.
