March 19, 2019 – Newburg, WI – The aftermath of ice jams, rushing water and flooding on the Milwaukee River has left a sad mess in its wake at Fireman’s Park in Newburg.

Video shows a pile of ice chunks on the shore in a grassy area just below the U.S. Post in Newburg.

A bit further on there’s a pile of wet logs and a splintered wooden picnic table jutting out of the frozen ice jam.

The fence from the baseball field is a mangled wreck and much of the surrounding area is muddy pool of water and ice.

On Saturday, March 16 the Village declared a Level 2 State of Emergency as repairs were made to the sanitation system.

Sunday, the emergency order was lifted.

Below is an earlier look at flooding on March 15, 2019.
