In one Engineering With Nature® project located on Washington’s Skagit River, USACE Seattle District incorporated salmon habitat features into levee repairs made from 2007 to 2011. Woody debris is an essential component for salmon rearing and refuge habitat complexity. Large logs with rootwads were laid on the riverbed bench of the levee as a mitigation feature that delivers benefits to the fish during high river flows. Skagit River has been designated as a critical habitat for three salmonid species listed under the Endangered Species Act.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- “[Our] research will explore solutions to transportation challenges that we all face, whether it is global deployment of military forces, delivery of critical resources to the right place at the right time, transportation options for families and veterans to access medical care, or solving the ‘last mile’ challenges that will integrate the full community into our transportation system with all of its opportunities.”
“The National Levee Database is a public view into the information that builds understanding of the benefits and potential risks levees pose for the communities in which they exist,” said Eric C. Halpin, P.E., USACE deputy dam and levee safety officer.
