Mt. St. Helens sediment management

The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers plans to be in Toutle this evening, holding another public meeting to solicit comments on the Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for their proposed long-term plans for sediment management at Mount St. Helens. Corps officials say that this scoping process is the initial stage of the SEIS process, with four alternatives currently being proposed. The Portland District of the Corps of Engineers is looking at a plan that runs through the year 2035, working to maintain flood protection for the cities of Castle Rock, Lexington, Kelso and Longview. Today’s meeting starts at 5:30 pm in the multi-purpose room at the Toutle Lake Schools, and will include a brief presentation, display materials and an opportunity to ask questions of the SEIS team. Additional details are available on the Corps of Engineers Portland District website.
