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.

Employees with contractor Penny Lee, based out of Arlington, operate a dump truck and a D-5 bulldozer to push, smooth and compact material in 18 inches of water where the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Seattle District, is assisting Snohomish County with construction of a temporary berm to reduce flood impacts and prevent near-term flooding of SR 530 near mile post 37 at C Post Road.  Searchers have ongoing and planned recovery activities in this area after a March 22 mudslide constricted flow of the Stillaguamish River and caused flooding upstream.  Construction began today and the initial pass will be to match the water surface elevation with rock and embankment material and try to connect to high ground with the intention of raising it to elevation of SR530 at the berm’s completion in a week or so.
