“It’s rare when a project is able to benefit a community in so many ways as the Riverbend Project. Besides moving families in a flood zone out of harm’s way this project protects critical infrastructure and reduces the effects of flooding on other families and businesses downstream. At the same time it creates spawning and rearing habitat for threatened salmon species. It’s a WIN, WIN, WIN, WIN!”
