Weigh in on the Army Corps’ recommendations for our levees

The Corps' Tentative Plans for our Levee System

On Monday, January 6th, the US Army Corps of Engineers released the Portland Metro Levee System Draft Integrated Feasibility Report & Environmental Assessment for public review and comment. Their report includes information about the analysis they have conducted to date, the vulnerabilities that have been identified within the levee system, the potential solutions that have been considered, the final array of alternatives that were modeled, and the alternative that has tentatively been selected as their preferred plan.
