Flood teams from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Seattle District initiated work in Oroville, Washington, and Clark Fork, Idaho, during this past weekend, and continued work in Okanogan and Conconully, Washington, and Plains, Montana.

Seattle District’s Okanogan flood team is assisting Okanogan County with berm construction in Oroville at Highway 97 to reduce the flood risk to infrastructure.

Engineers are also in Clark Fork, Idaho, to initiate erosion protection work along the Johnson Creek Road on the Clark Fork River near Clark Fork.

Crews continue rock placement to combat erosion at the Mill Street Bridge in the town of Okanogan along Salmon Creek and berm work in Conconully, Washington, as well as levee strengthening in Plains, Montana.

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

USACE, the National Weather Service, Bonner County, Cusick and the Kalispel Tribe provided information to members of the public, elected officials and stakeholders at a May 11 public meeting in Cusick regarding flood preparation and response and Pend Oreille River forecasts.
