Area businesses cleaning up after flooding last month

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - It's been one month since the flooding across much of Sioux Falls and two area businesses have been hard at work cleaning up, each getting ready for their busiest seasons.

Cliff Avenue Greenhouse had eight of their "growing greenhouses" underwater last month. One with water up to their shoulders.

Luckily, Cliff Avenue Greenhouse co-owner, Heidi Teal, was able to save the majority of her plants which will be moved into her retail greenhouse in the coming days.

Since the flood waters, the greenhouses have been cleaned, and they are now in the process of preparing for another spring.

For Leif Ericson Day Camp, the staff is still in the process of cleaning up. Two-thirds of its buildings are flood water free, but some buildings have mud on the floors.

The most significant loss for the camp has been supplies, equipment, vehicles, and damages to a bridge on the site.

Camp director, Mike Murphy, says that damages could cost upwards of $40,000 to $50,000.

The camp will start on time, June 3rd.

The camp has a Go-Fund-Me page set up, and you can get to the page here..
