Abstract
  • South Corvallis, located at the conjunction of the Mary's and Willamette Rivers, experiences frequent flooding; damage resulting from flooding increases yearly as the land is progressively developed. Though large structural projects have been constructed above Corvallis on the Willamette River, the flood threat has not been eliminated. Flood behavior in South Corvallis is complicated from overflow from the Mary's River and from water channeling through a Millrace. The National Flood Insurance Program, offering subsidized insurance rates to structures threatened by flooding, provided a strong incentive to Corvallis to enter the program and to comply with its flood plain management requirements. As a result, a two-zone flood plain policy, and a filling and grading ordinance have been recently adopted; however, proposals by the Army Corps of Engineers for structural protection, and by the Mary's River Basin Citizen's Advisory Committee, conflict in both their goals and their solutions to the flood hazard. Benton County and the City of Corvallis are coordinating efforts toward flood plain management but both are hesitant to take actions which will complicate administration or increase financial responsibility. A coordinated and effective approach to mitigating South Corvallis flood damages has not yet been established.
