Environmental Assessment for Options Building Relocation and Reconstruction, Linn County, Iowa (October 2009)
As a result of the June 2008 storms, the Options Building was inundated with flood water. Due to the extent and depth of flood waters in and around the facility, it was not possible to bring equipment to pump out standing water for three days. As a result, standing water remained in parts of the facility for a period of three days. Flood water permeated every section of the 50,322 square foot facility. Due to the extended duration of standing water, the Options Building was red tagged as uninhabitable by the Linn County Environmental Health Department. Public access to the facility was prohibited. FEMA’s assessment teams determined that the Options Building was damaged in excess of 50 percent of its value. As a result, Linn County has applied through the Iowa Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and FEMA Region VII Public Assistance Program for funding to relocate and reconstruct the Options Building.
