The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Seattle District’s flood teams are completing rock placement in the Skagit and Nooksack river basins, where high river flows threatened communities with flooding over the weekend. 

USACE’s flood engineers are completing a 500-foot buried rock trench along a trail system adjacent to West Main St in Lyman, Washington.

The work is part of a joint contingency plan developed by the City of Lyman, Skagit County, Washington State and the Corps to safeguard public infrastructure in Lyman.

According to USACE, the project is expected to be complete this week.

Crews in Whatcom County added rock armor to 420 feet of the Sande-Williams levee downstream of Deming, Washington, to prevent scour and erosion, protecting the levee from high flows, and this work should also be wrapped up this week.
