The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Seattle District, Corps of Engineers partnered with the Quinault Indian Tribe to design and construct repairs to a revetment that restored the flood protection prior to this winter's storm season.  The Tribe's coastal revetment was damaged in last winter's storms. The damage to the revetment significantly increased the coastal storm flood risk to the Tribal village.  The construction project replaced the ocean-side rock slope and toe. The total cost of design and repair was approximately $580,000 and was completed Nov. 7.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Seattle District, has nearly completed construction of the temporary berm within the SR530 slide area. Though the berm is complete in length, construction efforts have now shifted to raising the berm an additional foot ahead of predicted heavy rainfall. The additional height is expected to help reduce potential flooding risks, and the Corps is maintaining close coordination and communication with Snohomish County officials as recovery workers continue to search the area.
