Due to flooding across the entrance road to the city's yard waste site on Independence Avenue, the facility was closed until further notice.
Rising water in Black Hawk Creek, caused by heavy rain, led Waterloo Public Works to close the flood gates on both sides of Hope Martin Park on Fletcher Avenue. The gates will reopen when flood waters recede.
