Heavy rains dowse Clay County area over weekend

Heavy rains dowse Clay County area over weekend

Heavy rains last Thursday and Friday in southern Adams County and Clay County caused a little grief for rural residents near Deweese this past weekend, as the Little Blue River just northwest of Deweese came out of its banks at roads 302 and H. Much of Clay County as a whole received yet another Memorial Day weekend deluge of rainfall, with much of the county exceeding two and a half inches of rain, with several locations in and around Fairfield, Deweese, Clay Center, Harvard and Sutton exceeding three inches. Reports from the website NERain.com shared that areas in and around Edgar approached the three-inch mark as of noon on Memorial Day. An area nearly three miles northeast of Fairfield, according to the website, came one-tenth of an inch short of hitting the four-inch mark. TORY DUNCAN | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

For the second straight year, Clay County residents witnessed a Memorial Day weekend wrath from Mother Nature.

While rainfall totals from the 2019 Memorial Day weekend rain event were equaled by this past weekend’s rainfall totals, the majority of road flooding occurred in southern Clay County, especially along the Little Blue River.

Southern stretches of Adams County, including Roseland and Ayr, received in excess of eight inches of rain Thursday, May 21 through Saturday, May 23, causing the Little Blue River to swell out of its banks near the Crystal Lake State Park north of Ayr.

Discussion continues on Edgar-Fairfield water easement

No decision has been made on the easement to allow a water project pipeline to be bored under county roads between Edgar and Fairfield.

The Clay County Board of Supervisors met May 26 remotely, continuing the discussion on the easement from the week prior. Technical difficulties had affected public access to the May 19 meeting, also held remotely.

“A lot of the confusion last week was a lot of people thought we were approving the easements of the entire project,” Tom Roemmich Jr., Clay County roads superintendent, said.

The discussion item on the May 19 agenda, continued May 26, was only to approve or disapprove the project’s easement pertaining to burying the pipeline under county roads along eight miles of the north side of the Union Pacific Railroad, he explained. All other easements, including those on private land, must be negotiated outside of county board business.

SHDHD emphasizes need for prevention in Sutton and Clay County

Article Image Alt Text

The South Heartland District Health Department (SHDHD) previously reported community spread of COVID-19 in Clay County, which means that SHDHD’s investigations have been unable to determine the source of exposure for some cases.

Recent information shows spread in Sutton, and ​SHDHD is asking all residents to self-monitor for symptoms along with temperature checks twice daily. Self-monitoring helps you to identify early symptoms. Stay home (isolate at home) if you or a family member/household contact have any symptoms consistent with COVID-19. Contact your local provider or SHDHD for testing.
