Levee labor

The Green River Valley needs the river to run through it, not over it. In an effort to reduce flooding in the valley, which takes in the City of Kent, nearly 10,000 truckloads of rock will be hauled in over the next few months to repair nearly a mile of levees along the Green River in Kent between Frager Road and the Riverbend Golf Course. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, in partnership with the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks, started the repair work three weeks ago on the Kent Shops-Narita levees. The project is slated to be finished by mid-September. - Charles Cortes/Reporter
