MULTNOMAH COUNTY DRAINAGE DISTRICT / WHAT WE DO / DISTRICT SERVICES
Icon Levee
Levee Maintenance

District employees maintain levees in compliance with federal regulations. This includes levee inspections, vegetation management, and damage repair such as bank stabilization or replacement of rip rap (stone used to protect against erosion).

Drainage Management

The flow and level of water in many ditches, pipes, culverts, and areas of the slough are managed by the District. To reduce flood risk, district employees manage vegetation (i.e., including trees and grasses), remove debris, and attend to wildlife impacts.<br />

Emergency Response

District staff undergo FEMA trainings in order to prepare for our role in a flood or other regional emergency. In a high water event, district staff monitor areas of risk typically through active patrols by employing risk reduction measures as necessary.
