Flood teams from the Seattle District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, have initiated levee strengthening work in Riverside, Washington, and continue berm construction in Conconully, Washington, and levee strengthening work in Okanogan, Washington, and Plains, Montana. 

According to the USACE’s latest announcement, Seattle District’s Okanogan flood team is assisting Okanogan County with levee strengthening in the town of Riverside and berm construction to reduce the risk of flooding in Conconully and to strengthen a scoured portion of the Elmway levee on the Okanogan River near the town of Okanogan.

A second team continues support to the City of Plains and Sanders County, strengthening two areas at risk of scour on the 1948 levee at Plains.

Teams are also providing technical assistance to Missoula County, Montana, St. Maries, Idaho, and Yakima County, Washington, and the Kalispel Tribe.

Flood fight teams are coordinating with the States of Washington, Idaho and Montana. Agency representatives will continue to coordinate with the counties and cities along the rivers, and the Colville Confederated Tribes, said USACE in its announcement.
