“Probably be flooded through next week and then it’ll take a few days for clean up. The walkways, they’ll get mud and alga and so forth accumulated on the walkways and we’ll have to go in and clean that off,” explained Takash.

Takash said they’ll also go in and wipe down the railings and clean up any debris. He said he is anxious to get the gardens back up for the public and for the many events they have onsite.
