USACE: Input Invited on ODOT Scheme

The USACE’s Walla Walla District has invited public comments on their proposal to grant permission pursuant to 33 United States Code Section 408 (Section 408) for potential alteration to a Corps-constructed river improvement (public work).

The Corps plans to grant Section 408 permission to the Milton-Freewater Water Control District to allow the modification of the Walla Walla River Flood Control Project (levee system) by the Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) to replace the structurally deficient Birch Creek Road Bridge.

“Comments must be emailed or postmarked no later than February 1, 2017, to be considered in the development of an Environmental Assessment (EA) to evaluate the effects of the Corps granting permission to potentially alter the Walla Walla River Flood Control Project (levee system) under Section 408,” the USACE said.

The Walla Walla District operates and maintains multi-purpose infrastructure assets, and plans and executes engineering and water resource services across the Inland Northwest to safely maximize public and environmental benefits.
