The Cumberland Levee Repair Project
The temporary cofferdam at the Cumberland Levee repair site has been reinforced with a 36” windrow to keep water from overtopping the structure after several days of rain once again brought water levels out of the banks of the Washita River near the construction site Nov. 30, 2015. The dam was built for events such as this in order to keep the site free of excess water during high-water events. The Cumberland Levee repair site is in Phase I of a repair project by the Tulsa District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, after breaching earlier in 2015 due to record amounts of rainfall.
