Even More Trees To Be Removed From White River

More trees will be removed along the White River levee to comply with federal flood protection requirements. The Star Press reports that the Muncie Sanitary District has approved work to remove more than 50 trees near Phillips Quarry and McCulloch Park that were not in the original plan. That added another $40,000 to the contract with Ross Landscaping of New Castle that is doing the work. More than $330,000 is being spent on the project. The U.S. Corps of Army Engineers ordered the district to remove trees and other obstructions along the river levee to protect against erosion and flooding.
