Flood teams from the Seattle District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, initiated work yesterday on the Turah Levee in Missoula County, Montana.

The $161,550 project is designed to stabilize and protect the levee by repairing a 150-foot scour hole, USACE said in their latest announcement.

Work also continues in Okanogan, Washington, in Clark Fork, Idaho, and in Plains, Montana. Crews continue work on a flood berm in Pend Oreille County, the 1st Street Levee in Okanagan, Washington, and the Sanders County Levee in Montana.

Teams are providing technical assistance to Missoula County, Montana; St. Maries, Idaho; Yakima County, Stevens County and Pend Oreille County, Washington; Twisp, Washington; and the Kalispel and Colville Confederated Tribes.

Flood fight teams are coordinating with the States of Washington, Idaho and Montana. Agency representatives will continue to coordinate with the Tribes, counties and cities along the rivers.

Public Law 84-99 authorizes USACE to provide flood fight assistance at the request of local officials when rivers are at or above flood stage and local resources are fully used.
