The project that I spent my time working on was the White River Pacific Right Bank Flood Protection Project. In January of 2009 the White River significantly flooded neighborhoods and a county park in the City of Pacific. The overall goal of this Capital Improvement Project is to reduce the potential for White River flooding and to improve environmental conditions for ESA-listed Chinook salmon, other wildlife and more. Design alternatives (that have yet to be decided on) include many components that will happen over multiple years including property acquisition, levee construction and floodplain restoration along the right bank (River and Floodplain Management Section). Currently, the project is in the feasibility and environmental review stage, and a draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is being prepared in order to evaluate project alternatives.
