440 aF �psC�OCS... TU THE C4jLy0C/ <br />KITTITAS COUNTY <br />HZTTZTASi COUNTY <br />DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS <br />Kirk Holmes, Director <br />TO: Neil Caulkins, DPA <br />FROM: Douglas D'Hondt, County Engineer, Public Works <br />DATE: February 17, 2011 <br />SUBJECT: Kostenko Flood Claim <br />A portion of the site is considered part of the FEMA designated 100 -year floodplain. That <br />portion of property may have flooded. We have no evidence of the levee breach flooding the <br />property. A small portion of the levee is located on the site. That portion of the levee remains <br />intact. Most of the property's shoreline does not have a levee constructed on it. Our <br />photographic evidence indicates the flood remained within the designated floodplain. We do not <br />possess any photographic evidence of flooding extents on the property. Photos from the <br />surrounding area indicate flooding remains within the designated floodplain. <br />This property is not developed. <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 />USACE planned to finish the levee reconstruction summer 2011. KCPW will not complete the <br />construction until this claim is resolved. <br />411 North Ruby, Suite 1 TEL (509) 962-7523 <br />Ellensburg, WA 98926 FAX (509) 962-7663 <br />
