No levee is <br />located on the property. Aerial photography proves flooding from the river remained within the <br />designated floodplain during the January 07, 2009 event. The area outside the designated <br />floodplain was not impacted during this event. Photos from the surrounding area indicate <br />flooding remains within the designated floodplain. Aerial photography from January 09, 2009 <br />indicates surface water did not contact the house. Surface water flowing from the east crossed <br />the site and driveway through an existing ditch. <br />No record of a Kittitas County flood management system on the Teanaway River was found. <br />The only known levees are found immediately upstream of SR 970 on the right bank and at the <br />left bank located near the end of Quail Valley Road. <br />Kittitas County does not retain ownership of the levees and never have. Kittitas County worked <br />with the US Army Corps of Engineers after the January 2009 flood event to reconstruct the one <br />levee for protection of Quail Valley and Lambert Roads. <br />411 North Ruby, Suite 1 TEL (509) 962-7523 <br />Ellensburg, WA 98926 FAX (509) 962-7663 <br />
