Flooding at the Mint

During the last week of January, 2009, the Mint was subjected to severe flooding which caused problems with the restoration project. The flooding was mostly due to the fact that City Hall has not yet dredged and cleared the river in the proximity of the Mint, as required by the architects in their projects of 1998 and 2004.
