Mill Creek Levee Phase-2 Begins

Phase-2 of the Mill Creek Levee maintenance is about to begin, according to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District.

The gravel trails on the south side of the federally managed section of the Mill Creek Levee System will be intermittently closed to all visitors starting Thursday, December 1, to accommodate levee-maintenance activities, USACE officials announced yesterday.

Winter 2016-2017 Phase-2 repair work on the south levee will include an area from the division works beginning near the Mill Creek Office, progressing toward the Jones Ditch, just downstream of the wooden pedestrian bridge.

Repair and maintenance work involving heavy equipment is slated to begin today and is anticipated to take approximately three months to complete.

The value of task orders to be performed during Winter 2016-2017 is about $670,000.
