Gays Mills, a community relocation out of the floodplain
Sunday, January 29, 2012
The Village of Gays Mills was struck by back-to-back floods in August 2007 and June 2008. Both flood events were greater than 500-year flood events, which resulted in substantial losses to residences and businesses within the Village. With these devastating floods occurring so close together, the Village began earnestly considering the possibility of relocating the portion of the Village located in the floodplain.
