Army Corps water managers regulate five Washington dams, reduce flood risk
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers flood fight in Lyman, Washington, February 1. Seattle District water managers took control of the Upper Baker and Ross dams upstream of Lyman per established agreements February 1. Corps officials held back about 19,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) at both dams, reducing downstream Skagit River flows at Concrete, Washington, from about 114,000 cfs to 78,000 cfs. This is equivalent to a river stage reduction of more than five feet. (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers photo by Jonathan Springer)
