Comments Sought on Mill Creek Flood Risk Management Study

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Walla Walla District, is inviting public comments regarding the scope of the Corps’ proposed general investigation feasibility study to evaluate alternatives and recommend a plan to reduce the City of Walla Walla’s flood risks along Mill Creek.

The study will include a modernized reassessment of the overall flood risks Mill Creek presents to the Walla Walla, Washington, community, announced the Corps.

It will consider the reduced capacity, performance, and reliability of several components of the existing system, as well as develop a range of alternatives that could be implemented to efficiently and effectively reduce those risks looking forward, reported USACE.

The Corps is soliciting public opinion on relevant issues and environmental effects that should be considered in the study. Scoping comments will be used to help: 1) identify potential and key issues to address; 2) explore potential flood-risk-management alternatives, in addition to no action; and 3) identify potential environmental effects. The deadline for sending written comments is Nov. 16, 2018.

The Corps will also host a public open house at the Courtyard by Marriott, located at 550 West Rose Street in Walla Walla, Washington, on Thursday, Nov. 1, 2018 at 3-7 p.m.
