USACE Begins Lord Hill Levee Project in Snohomish

Permanent repairs to the Lord Hill Levee on the Snohomish River are now underway upstream of the town of Snohomish, Washington.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ officials will restore approximately 250 feet of damaged levee near the confluence of the Pilchuck and Snohomish Rivers.

Damage to the levee occurred during flood events in late 2015 and early 2016 when the Snohomish River exceeded flood stage. The 2016 repair will cost approximately $157,000 with the construction expected to be complete by September 16, 2016.

The project will restore the levee to a 10-year level of flood protection in order to protect lives and property from subsequent flooding in the ensuing flood seasons. This will protect more than 4 square miles of rural agricultural, commercial, and residential properties as well as public infrastructure in the area.
