Workers install flood control wall at Iowa Advanced Technology Laboratories
Workers on the University of Iowa campus are installing a 1,500-foot removable flood wall to encircle the Iowa Advanced Technology Laboratories (IATL) site this week.
The “invisible” flood wall is a series of panels that can be quickly constructed to keep out floodwater and then taken down and stored when not in use.
