Colfax crews clear concrete channel


August 9, 2018

Colfax city crews were at work clearing and cleaning the flood control channel last week. Public Works Director Matt Hammer said crews are working in the channel in advance of the Army Corps of Engineers inspection which was scheduled for this week.

Brush from shrubs adjoining the channel were cut and left on the channel floor to be hauled out. Hammer said they are doing the work in the early part of the day because temperatures in the concrete channel can be as much as 10 degrees hotter than outside temperatures elsewhere in town.
