Background: The L-627-624-611-614 Mosquito Creek and Upper Pony Creek Levee System was damaged during the 2019 Flood Event, leading to the Project Sponsor submitting a Public Law (PL) 84-99 Rehabilitation Assistance request to the US Army Corps of Engineers – Omaha District.
Current Action: Finalizing the damage assessment and economic analysis report. This will allow the USACE team to communicate to the sponsor if any damages to the L-627-624-611-614 levee system are eligible for PL 84-99 Rehabilitation Assistance. However, due to the continued high water levels it is likely that a follow-on damage assessment will be required to inspect areas of the level that are currently underwater.
16 July 2019 – Final Determination on project eligibility is on-going. The team anticipates contacting the sponsor with an eligibility determination in the upcoming few weeks.
