Rumor Control - 1:12 p.m. 1/9/2009
PacifiCorp did an excellent job of protecting all of the Lewis River Valley residents from a catastrophic flood that would have occurred if the dams had not been there. Many rumors and very poor reporting by some reporters led people to be misinformed. This is what happened: At the height of the event there was over 150000 Cubic Feet per Second coming into the reservoirs. At the beginning of the event there was 35000 acre feet of storage in the three reservoirs total. By holding back water PacifiCorp was able to never release over 40000 CFS. Consequently, there was only minor flooding in very low lying areas. As you know, we live right on the North Fork by Woodland. The river was at least five feet below our yard at the highest. PacifiCorp needs to be congratulated for not over reacting. The Woodland Fire Department also did the right thing by asking us to evacuate because they were told it was possible that 60000 CFS may have to be released and it would have been in the middle of the night. Bottom line, we all were very fortunate. Email me any time.

Pool in Woodland - 9:30 a.m. 7/3/2008
With the increased cost of fuel, now would be a good time to have a pool in Woodland. I personally have been waiting for more than 30 years for this, since September 1978, when I moved here. There was a site purchased, and Mr. Dobbe decided it wouldn't work because it was in an industrial area. My question....what about the duplexes that sit to the south of the site, ON THE SAME BLOCK!. And the retirement home to the east of the site, ON THE SAME BLOCK!. With fuel costs impacting family visiting the retirees, I implore people to look into why we don't go ahead with the pool at the original site. GO LOOK FOR YOURSELF. From the frontage road on the west side of Interstate 5, turn west on Beechwood, go past Woodside Terrace and take the next right, heading north on Glenwood St. The open field on the right is the original site for the Woodland Swimming Pool.
See the facts first hand. I challenge you.

Woodland flood protection. - 1:39 p.m. 1/28/2008

Inside the Woodland City Limits is a cement “sea wall” that runs along SR 503 and a city street. This wall is a flood protection wall. There is a gap in the wall where it crosses the state highway and continues along a city street as well as a couple of driveway gaps for residences along the city street. These gaps are designed to be closed using removable panels that are kept stored nearby at the local diking district. The last time these panels were put into place was during the flood of 1996. Since then, there are very few people left in local gov’t who have actually had anything to do with putting the wall up.

The City wishes to conduct an exercise whereby the removable panels are put in place. If this exercise entails putting up all of the removable panels, it will have a noticeable impact on the SR 503 highway, which would have to be closed for the exercise.

We have scheduled a pre-planning meeting for this exercise on Tuesday, February 12th, at 1:30 p.m. at the Woodland City Hall, Council Chambers, 100 Davidson Ave. The purpose of this first meeting will be to determine what the scope of this exercise will be. It could be as little as just doing a table top exercise on how it would happen in a real event…to an actual complete install of the panels.
