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.

“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.
