Geneva Levee Restoration Project

A delegation of state and federal officials took part in the groundbreaking for the Geneva levee restoration project.

For Congressman Terry Everett and Alabama Gov. Bob Riley, it was a momentous occasion.

After more than a decade of planning, work on the Geneva levee is finally getting underway.

The two-year project, approved by congress, will cost $12 million.

The levee was built in 1938 to protect the town from high water from the Choctahatchee and Pea Rivers.

The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers plan to modernize the structure.
