Riverside Levee Repairs Underway

The Okanogan River basin flood team from the Seattle District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, began work May 25 to assist Okanogan County in closing a section on the left bank of the breached Riverside levee.

As USACE reported, the Clark Fork team is continuing work on the Turah Levee in Missoula County, Montana, and both teams and the Pend Oreille team are monitoring levees and providing technical assistance to local communities as rivers remain above flood stage.

Work on the Riverside and Turah levees is expected to be complete by the end of the weekend.

Corps of Engineers’ officials warn boaters and the public to be safe and watch out for floating or submerged logs or debris on Lake Pend Oreille. For safety purposes, all of Albeni Falls’ boat ramps are closed including Riley Creek’s. The Corps’ swim beaches are all closed for swimming. There is no re-opening scheduled yet.

Seattle District flood teams have completed 17 direct assistance requests in the Okanogan River basin in Washington, in the Clark Fork River basin in Montana and in the Pend Oreille River basin in Idaho and Washington.
