Mud Mountain Dam typically does not hold a pool when not being used for flood control.  Operation of Mud Mountain Dam for flood control held back inflow of about 22,500 cfs to 6,000 cfs outflow during the peak of the floods. While inflows have now dropped substantially, the public should be prepared for continued high outflows in the near future as dam operators release stored water to make room in the reservoirs for potential future high inflows. While releases from Mud Mountain Dam are expected to stay below the official flood stage of 8,000 cfs, the Corps will periodically monitor conditions today in the Pacific and Sumner areas on the White River because of the unpredictability of channel capacity there.

While releases from Mud Mountain Dam are expected to stay below flood stage of 8,000 cfs, the Corps has levee walkers in the Pacific and Sumner area to monitor conditions because of the unpredictability of channel capacity there. Inflows to the dam have been as high as 21,000 cfs, and the Corps has held flows below flood stage to reduce impacts downstream to the extent possible.

Doug Weber, Seattle District Emergency Management chief, was called to South Carolina as a subject matter expert in infrastructure assessment. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Headquarters, has been tasked to assess 652 non-federal dams to determine the extent of damages following recent flooding there. Weber is also working with the Federal Emergency Management Agency to develop a wastewater treatment facility assessment plan. There are 74 wastewater treatment plants that have reported flood damage. The Corps also completed an Unmanned Aerial System mission, which is the first time the UAS has been used by USACE for a FEMA mission. The photo shows those who have come together from across the country to support the mission in the South Carolina state-run Emergency Operations Center.

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.
