USA: More Money for Skagit Flood Protection Plan

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Work Plan for Fiscal Year 2014 released two days ago included $400,000 to help continue progress for the Skagit General Investigation Study (G.I.).

The Skagit G.I. will help identify long-term flood control projects that will protect lives and property in the Skagit Valley that are vulnerable to regular and harmful floods along the Skagit River.

Congresswoman Suzan DelBene and Congressman Rick Larsen have consistently called on the Administration to provide federal funds to complete the project.

“Completing the Skagit G.I. is going to get us one step closer to protecting Skagit County’s residents, businesses and our local economy from potentially devastating floods for decades to come,” said DelBene. “The inclusion of $400,000 in the Army Corps of Engineer’s work plan is good news for Skagit Valley communities.”
