Cedar Creek Flood Mitigation
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Los Angeles District employees Reuben Sasaki (red shirt), hydrologic engineer, and Jim Moye (red cap), senior construction representative, led a site survey for members of the construction team in Cedar Creek, Arizona, Aug. 15. The group toured areas where potential flood and debris flows could threaten lives and structures. The White Mountain Apache Tribe was affected by the Cedar Creek Fire which burned approximately 46,000 acres on their reservation and negatively impacted many of the tribal/non-tribal communities in the area. The National Weather Service forecasts include the potential for substantial flows in Cedar Creek resulting from thunderstorms in this region.
