A week after moving stuff to higher ground, players and volunteers were at Gould Field returning equipment to the blockhouse. A call went out early Sunday for help that was needed to move equipment back into the blockhouse. When the river’s started rising late last month, the equipment was removed since Marquette’s football field frequently is flooded.
Both the Fox and Illinois River’s have fallen back below their flood stage in Ottawa. The Illinois in La Salle and Henry is still above its banks and will stay that way all this week.
