SD Parks Director Says Flood Damage Being Repaired

SD Parks Director Says Flood Damage Being Repaired
Fisher Grove State Park

PIERRE, SD -

State Parks and Recreation Director Doug Hofer says crews are making progress in fixing flood damage at South Dakota's parks and recreation areas.

In an appearance on the Dakota News Network radio stations, Hofer on Monday said he expects all parks and recreation areas to be in good shape by the Fourth of July.

Hofer says electrical hookups are being installed and new grass is being grown in heavily damaged state camping areas just below Oahe Dam along the Missouri River.

He says about 40 of the state's 60 parks and recreation areas were damaged by flooding last year.

Hofer says total flood damages amounted to about $9 million, and about $6.5 million from state funds and reallocated parks and recreation money is available now for the highest priority repairs.
