CITY OF PINEVILLE: The north flood gate at US-25 E is back open.

Local Government

By Press release submission | Feb 9, 2020

Meeting 09

City of Pineville issued the following announcement on Feb. 6

The north flood gate at US-25 E is back open. The Cumberland River is still rising at a slow rate in Pineville. We feel that at this rate the river will crest lower than the level to completely close any gates or evacuate any homes in Pineville city limits. We can not thank enough the Pineville Utilities Commission, Pineville Street Department, Pineville Police Department, Bell County Emergency Management, Bell County Sheriff's Department, Pineville Fire Department, Bell County Volunteer Fire Department, Judge Brock's office and Mayor Madon's office for the tremendous amount of work which began 24 hours ago. Many of these men went without sleep or food for 24 hours as they worked to keep Pineville safe. Please keep Bell County and the surrounding area in your thoughts and prayers as a significant amount of damage has taken place and it will take months for families to recover.
