Statement by Lt. Col. Tim Vail
Commander of the USACE Walla Walla District 

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers operates the four lower Snake River dams, and the best available science and economic analyses clearly show the Snake River dams provide outstanding value to the Nation. Snake River dams deliver clean, renewable hydropower, an efficient marine transportation corridor, and valuable recreation opportunities. They provide these benefits at a very reasonable cost while successfully coexisting with fish and wildlife.

The Mill Creek Flood Control Project was completed in 1942 and included levees along the improved Mill Creek channel to provide flood protection for the City of Walla Walla. Currently, the Mill Creek Project levees fail to comply with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers vegetation standards used to ensure reliability, resiliency and operability of levee, floodwall, and dam projects nationwide.
