5 Flood Emergency Response Plan states Revises 100-year flow from 25,000 to 29,000 cfs The chance of a 100-year flood occurring is small 500-year flood elevation is feet on the lake Speed of river could reach 7 fps Highest recorded Iowa River flow is 28,200 cfs There are steam tunnels connected to the Power Plant that could cause the plant to be flooded

36 Gas and diesel power pumps running continuously in steam tunnels, power plant, and other faculties at the height of the flood event: Three 10 pumps Seven 8 pumps Fourteen 6 pumps Forty One 4 pumps Twenty Nine 3 pumps Nine 2 pumps

37 7,100 feet (1.34 miles) of main campus team tunnels flooded (total 5.9 miles on campus). 25,500 lineal feet of pipe insulation 385 light fixtures 17,500 feet of electrical circuits Misc pipe anchors, guides, expansion joints, valves, condensate pumps, etc. Much of the flooded piping was covered with asbestos

42 Air pumps work great, gasoline pumps cause problems when run indoors. Empty coal silos promptly Transition to Command and Control management structure, versus decentralized management structure. Emergency Control Center no planning, did on the fly. Great for refueling crews and coordination

43 How do you coordinate all the sandbag volunteers? Local contractors invaluable during flood preparations, heavy equipment, sand hauling, moving out of facilities in flood path, hooking up emergency pumps Keep track of what you spend money on, projects, procurement card, purchase order, standing order, etc. THREE BIDS!!!

47 Water will travel up into cables that have ends exposed to floodwater. It does not run out on its own. Lab analysis of selected samples replace any cables with water. FM Global guidance: 2 to 50 Megohm Rule NEMA Guidelines For Handling Water Damaged Electrical Equipment

50 Applied dc potential may be 500 or 1000 volts dc with the insulation resistance reading taken at one minute. A megohm meter reading of less than 50 megohms may be used for deciding when to investigate the cable installation, readings less than two megohms will most likely indicate damaged insulation. Readings of 2 to 50 megohms are usually associated with long circuit lengths, moisture, or contamination. In most cases a 2 to 50 megohm reading does not indicate the insulation quality, therefore 2 to 50 megohms should not be specified as a pass/fail value. Insulation resistance readings should be made and interpreted by experienced testing specialists to determine the condition of the cable's insulation. accessed

51 When any wire or cable product is exposed to water, any metallic component (such as the conductor, metallic shield, or armor) is subject to corrosion that can damage the component itself and/or cause termination failures. If water remains in medium voltage cable, it could accelerate insulation deterioration, causing premature failure. Wire and cable listed for only dry locations may become a shock hazard when energized after being exposed to water. Any recommendations for reconditioning wire and cable in Section 1.0 are based on the assumption that the water contains no high concentrations of chemicals, oils, etc. If it is suspected that the water has unusual contaminants, such as may be found in some floodwater, the manufacturer should be consulted before any decision is made to continue using any wire or cable products.
