This is the first week since May that the Missouri River has been below the 29-foot flood stage in Omaha. In celebration to the end of the flood, Mayor Suttle announced Lewis & Clark Landing would once again reopen to the public.
As the water recedes, clean up will continue on the Landing. The Labor Monument, which was used to measure the rise in river levels, remains closed.
Omaha Parks and Recreation Director Melinda Pearson says several other riverfront favorites will not open this season. Dodge Park and Freedom Park will remain closed until further notice.
The city officials continue to use pumps to get rid of excess rain water. Officials still describe Omaha as a bathtub without a drain.
