CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - A consultant’s plan for the mountain of trash that’s accumulated since the 2008 Cedar Rapids flood includes a trail system and an observation deck.

Cedar Rapids television station KGAN reports (https://bit.ly/1E3p5RX ) that Ayres Associates, of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, presented its plan Tuesday to the Cedar Rapids/Linn County Solid Waste Agency board, which took no final action.

“Mount Trashmore” is the local nickname for Linn County Solid Waste site 1. The closed landfill reopened shortly after the flood and began accepting flood debris. It closed again in 2013.

The $6.7 million plan calls for a walking trail and another trail for mountain bicyclists. It also calls for an event and learning center and the observation deck for viewing the Cedar River and downtown Cedar Rapids.
