  • Army Corps' temporary berm at SR530

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Seattle District, has completed construction of a temporary berm in the SR530 slide area. The 3,000-linear-foot berm, made from 20,000 tons of rock, gravel and earthen materials, was constructed in a week under difficult conditions. Though the length of the berm is complete, efforts are now focused on raising it an additional foot ahead of predicted heavy rainfall. The additional height is expected to help reduce potential flooding risks. The Corps is maintaining close coordination and communication with Snohomish County officials as recovery workers continue to search the area.
