Please be careful where you step with all that new rock!
Flood mitigation projects within the Lowe River floodplain are intended to mitigate flooding risk to protect property and publicly managed infrastructure and assets.
The risk of erosion and flooding along the Lowe River is increasing due to sediment accumulation (also known as aggradation) in the streambed. Assets and infrastructure are jeopardized without mitigation.
Preventative flood and erosion mitigation generally lead to more favorable outcomes at less cost and inconvenience than reactionary emergency work. Mitigation rather than emergency response is the optimal solution for protecting critical assets and infrastructure.
The flood mitigation projects proposed by the City of Valdez will be part of an integrated approach for flood and erosion mitigation conducted by the City in partnership with state, federal, and private institutions that also have an interest in reducing impacts to assets and infrastructure.
Proposed flood and erosion mitigation projects in the Lowe River Basin range in location from Keystone Canyon to tide waters in Port Valdez at Mean High Water (MHW) elevation. This section of the floodplain falls under the jurisdiction and responsibility of the City of Valdez.
