An August 1940 flood swept in improvements to Chestnut Creek in Galax that continue to keep residential and industrial areas, and even portions of downtown, dry today.
It took until the 1950s for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to “straighten the creek,” but an inspection in 2011 shows that the project still works to minimize flooding in the city.
Engineer Randy Campbell from Huntington, W.Va., in 2011 inspected the project that the corps built to see how it was holding up.
