ACEC / Southwest Washington Public Agency Liaison Committee Meeting


PRESENTATION
Steigerwald Wetland Restoration

PRESENTERS 
Curtis Loeb, P.E., Principal Engineer, Wolf Water Resources
Wade Osborne, P.E., Senior Associate Engineer, Cornforth Consultants



PROGRAM ABSTRACT 
The Steigerwald Floodplain Reconnection Project was a collaborative effort across over a dozen federal, state, and local agencies to reconfigure the Columbia River levee system to reduce flood risk, reconnect 965 acres of floodplain, and increase recreation opportunities at Steigerwald Lake National Wildlife Refuge located in Washougal, Washington. The project removed 2.2 miles of federally-authorized (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers) levee, excavation of four large floodplain channels, and creation of 115 acres of new wetland habitat. To reduce flood risks for residents and infrastructure, floodplain reconnection required the design and construction of two new setback levees, 500 feet of new floodwall along Gibbons Creek, and raising a section of Washington State Route 14. Wolf Water Resources and Cornforth Consultants have partnered since early design in 2014 to the end of construction in 2022, overcoming numerous significant technical challenges along the way. The presentation will discuss these technical challenges and also highlight the numerous project benefits for fish and wildlife, for adjacent property owners, for the Refuge land manager, and for the levee system operator.
