USACE: Flood Protection Work Nears End

Army Corps of Engineers teams are completing flood protection measures in the Skagit River basin and on the Olympic Peninsula.

One team is assisting the Quileute Tribe at La Push, Wash., with placement of as much as 500 tons of large rock at an area where a jetty ties in with the land and is at risk of breaching and flooding the community. Another Corps team is completing work for Skagit River basin Diking Districts 1 and 17 to repair eroded areas.

On Wednesday the Corps oversaw construction to build up 200 feet of the Hoh River coastal revetment an area eroded by Tuesday’s storm and sent sandbags to the City of Aberdeen and the Sauk-Suiattle and Hoh Tribes for their flood response measures.

The Corps responded to requests for support to local and Tribal governments,” said Doug Weber, the Seattle District’s Emergency Management Branch Chief“After flooding the Corps can also assist local communities with levee repairs if their levees are part of the Corps’ Levee Rehabilitation and Inspection Program.”

Public Law 84-99 enables the Corps to assist state and local authorities in flood fight activities and cost share in the repair of flood protection structures.
