Emergency erosion protection provided for coastal tribes
Corps flood fighters placed 310 tons of riprap at a jetty tie-in with the Quileute Tribe to protect their village and marina. A team also provided riprap and oversaw protective berm construction preserving a hydrant, water system and reservoir for the Hoh Tribe, who provided equipment and operators. The Corps worked in Tahola with the Quinault Tribe to construct 1,800 feet of earthen berm to successfully protect homes and utilities.
