Crews are scheduled to begin clearing several waterways in Polk County through a state-funding project called the Streamflow Rehabilitation Assistance Program (“StRAP”).


The Polk County Board of Commissioners has approved several contracts with companies to perform these tasks. Work will include vegetation removal, clearing of beaver dams, unclogging high-flow culvert and pump-around systems, and clearing wood debris.
