Iowa City Flood 2008

Photo to the left shows the flooded Iowa River at the renowned University of Iowa hydraulics lab on June 14.

I visited the lab twice in the past. Folks there actually used a real fish to test how it would move up the fish ladder. The fish ladder is installed at many dams, and is a life passage for migratory fish such as salmon.
