Here’s a page from Ameren/UE about their efforts restoring the flood damage to Johnson’s Shut-Ins State Park. Ameren’s reservoir atop Proffit Mountain collapsed on December 14th, flooding the state park and destroying the campgrounds. Ameren employees are working full time at the state park on the clean up, removing trees and clearing debris. The power utility is footing the bill for the entire cost of the restoration.
For a detailed description of the recovery, check out Shelley Power’s post with plenty of pictures of the park both before and after the flood. She was part of a media tour of the facility on February 9th and took detailed photos of the damage and the crews rebuilding the park. Shelley writes a great blog, full of photos around St. Louis and the neighborhood where I grew up. Check out here post about Lone Elk Park, one of my favorite places to visit when I was a kid.
