On- <br />site structures were within this floodplain. No levee is located on the property. Aerial <br />photography proves the flooding from the river remained within the designated floodplain during <br />the January 07, 2009 event. Photos from the surrounding area indicate flooding remains within <br />the designated floodplain. Aerial photography from January 09, 2009 indicates structures were <br />constructed between two existing ditches that transport flood water to the site. <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 />
