Ypsilanti still fixing flood-damaged park

BYPSILANTI, N.D. (AP) — Residents of the southeast North Dakota town of Ypsilanti are continuing to rebuild a park damaged by floodwaters 15 months ago.

The community of about 100 people is holding a cleanup day at Kate E. Glaspell Park on Saturday.

When the James River flooded in spring 2009, water washed out the park's road, parking lot and parts of the riverbank.

The park is used for camping, fishing and socializing as well as formal events such as weddings and reunions.

Some restoration work was done last summer. Local and federal money and donations are paying for the repairs.
