Buechel Recalls Making Plan After Flooding

The floods of 2008 may have happened in June – but their impact was definitely felt by many Fond du Lac residents well into July. County Executive Allen Buechel says the county learned from the experience, and found areas that don’t flood. 

Buechel says the new plan was developed using the rec center at the fairgrounds as a base for and that “administration for the county, all of that can be backed up out there. Emergency management can work out of that facility. So that is one thing, knowing where the flood waters go and what our alternatives are in that case.”

Buechel adds that a continuity of operations plan was also created to allow for them to transfer operations to the fairgrounds. The county has also been working on backup plans for issues that hit highways, farms, and other areas during severe rain and disasters.
