Free open house for Aberdeen/Hoquiam residents on local flood plans

Aberdeen and Hoquiam residents are invited to a free open house on Tuesday, September 20th 2016 regarding the North Shore Levee Project. The open house will be at 6:30pm at the Rotary Log Pavilion, 1401 Sargent Blvd, Aberdeen, WA 98520.

The North Shore Levee is a partnership between the Cities of Aberdeen and Hoquiam to provide comprehensive flood protection and flood insurance relief to our community. The proposed plan includes a system of earthen dikes, floodwalls, raised roadways, and pump stations.

The North Shore Levee is a continuation of work already done on the Aberdeen Southside Levee, covering shoreline from the River to the Hoquiam River.

“This project is the next step towards the ultimate goal of providing protection for all our lowland areas.”

Since spring of this year, consultants have been collecting data and performing preliminary analyses. The next step is selecting areas directly impacted, and property owners near the shoreline are invited to neighborhood meetings to share thoughts and concerns regarding potential impacts to property.
