Green River and Kent Valley Flood Prep and Preparation
HOWARD HANSON DAM & FLOOD INFORMATION
Residents and businesses below the Howard Hanson Dam in the Green River Valley should be prepared now for high risk flooding. Even communities like Newcastle, Maple Valley and Covington need to be prepared. The disruption in the Green River Valley and throughout Kent, Auburn will impact you. The key to preparedness is knowledge and awareness of flood risks. The high risk is due to water seeping more rapidly through an earthen bank next to the damn after record high water last winter. Until the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers can make repairs, it must limit the amount of flood water it stores behind the dam. If heavy and prolonged rain occurs this flood season many homes and businesses in the valley that don’t typically see flood water-including parts of Auburn, Kent Renton, South Seattle and Tukwila could be flooded.
