Chena River Lakes Flood Control Project team
The Chena River Lakes Flood Control Project is the most northern flood risk mitigation operation within the Corps and is responsible for protecting Fairbanks, North Pole and Fort Wainwright from high-water on the Chena River. The key components of the project includes Moose Creek Dam, an eight-mile-long earthen dam, four large flood gates and a 3,000 acre grassy floodway. Since its completion, the dam has been operated successfully 22 times most recently in the summer of 2014. From left to right is Reyna Volsky, project assistant; Jacob Kresel, senior park ranger; Cole Van Beusekom, park ranger; Charles Abbott, dam equipment repairer; and Tim Feavel, project manager.
