The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District, in partnership with the non-Federal sponsor, Tulsa County Drainage District No. 12, prepared the Draft Report with Integrated Environmental Assessment to identify, evaluate, and disclose all associated impacts that would result from the construction and operation of the potential alternatives aimed at improving life safety during flood events within the levee protected areas.

The Tentatively Selected Plan was selected based on life safety risk reduction and includes:

• 13 miles of a filtered berm with a toe drain
• 2,000 feet of cut off wall in Levee A at the Superfund site
• Filtered floodway structure
• Two detention ponds at Levee B tieback
• 3,000 feet of impervious blanket armoring on landside at overtopping location in Levee B
• Reconstruction of pump station one through seven for system-wide effectiveness and completeness

The report and associated documents are available online at www.swt.usace.army.mil.

Although no formal presentation will take place representatives will be available to answer general questions about the results of the study and the draft report.

The public comment period began Sept. 16 and ends Oct. 18. During the meeting comments may be submitted to Corps of Engineers representatives in writing. Email comments to
