Reichert establishes Howard Hanson Dam resource site

U.S. Congressman Dave Reichert, R-Auburn, today announced the launch of a resource webpage for constituents regarding the flooding threat in the Green River Valley.

The site includes information on flood preparedness, flood-related links to pertinent organizations, including the Army Corps of Engineers, King County, and the Federal Emergency Management Agency, and news section specifically related to the issue at the Howard Hanson Dam and in the Green River Valley.

“Sharing information is critical to prepare the area for any potential disaster situation,” Reichert said. “A long-term fix is necessary, but as this work is completed we must stay prepared in the near-term. By utilizing the web, we can share up-to-date information that is useful to those living in the area, and interested in the issue.”

Reichert is working in conjunction with local, state and federal officials on measures to bolster preparedness in the Valley, and also to ensure that the resources of the federal government are utilized in both short-term and long-term efforts.
