Hamilton City Levee Festival 2016

Field Technician Eligio Hernandez and family staff the River Partners booth and providing important information about the interactions between flood safety and healthy river ecosystems.

On October 23, 2016, River Partners teamed up with RD 2140, the Hamilton City Fire Protection District, the US Army Corps of Engineers, and many other community partners for a day at the Downtown Park to share information about the new levee currently under construction for this small community.

New infrastructure investment for small communities in the floodway is rare, and this project promises to deliver true multi-benefit public safety and environmental improvements for local residents. A special thank you goes out to the family and friends who attended the day at the park, and who shared their ideas and perspectives about the project.
