White River flows lowered for barrier dam repairs
Workers repair the White River Diversion Dam near Buckley, Washington. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers lowered White River flows from Mud Mountain Dam this week to ensure worker safety while making the repairs. The river was also diverted to the south side of the structure. The Corps’ Seattle District is working with Cascade Water Alliance, which owns the diversion dam, to keep it operational until the Corps builds a new fish passage facility that is expected to be operational in 2020, depending on funding.
