Just another follow up on this issue. As I’m sure you are aware, we are still restricting parking in the same areas along Bridgeton Rd. near an area of erosion on the levee. We had some geotechnical engineers evaluate the erosion last week and are working with the Corps to develop next steps.
Current river forecasts predict the River to rise above 16’ (minor flood stage) again later this week. We still believe that restricting parking in that area to reduce risk and increase access is the most prudent course of action at this time. We understand that this is an inconvenience and we appreciate your patience.

Levee Ready Columbia is a partnership of more than 20 organizations committed to a collaborative approach to flood plain management in Multnomah County along the Columbia River. Part of Levee Ready Columbia’s work is to ensure that the levees in Peninsula Drainage District #2 meet standards of risk set by the U.S. Corps of Engineer and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
This includes conducting a study to determine how buildings (“encroachments”) on or near the levee effect levee function during a flood event.
Come to the event to learn:
