Army Corps assisting Snohomish County with raising temporary berm at SR530 Slide
The Corps of Engineers runs a pump, which is installed near a temporary berm within the SR530 slide area. The pumps are emptying an area previously inundated with water so search teams can enter the area and continue working. Corps officials are now focusing efforts on raising the pictured berm an additional foot ahead of predicted 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.
