February 2017 – small slide

Recent heavy rains caused a couple new, small slides just upstream of the .4 slide repair and downstream of Bennet’s.  Below is a photo of the worst slide.  A Lincoln County engineer looked at it and recommended covering the ground near the road to prevent erosion from falling rain.  His opinion was that it looks stable for now but we should monitor it and may need to fill it in if the river cuts out more material.

Thank you to a resident who reported the slides as soon as he saw them!
