Abstract
  • The rise of water level in Malheur Lake in Southeastern Oregon has become a major issue of concern in Harney County, where the lake is located, and on a state-wide level. The concern is due to the extensive damage caused by flood water to agricultural land, highways and roads, a portion of the Burns-Hines and Ontario branch of the Union Pacific Railroad, utilities, homes and other private property, and to the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. The lake level started rising in 1982 and soon after the US Army Corps of Engineers (Walla Walla, Washington District), undertook a study of the problem. In 1986, the US Army Corps of Engineers, after intensive study, prepared an EIS and recommended flood reduction measures of two kinds, structural and non-structural. A single measure has not been agreed upon yet due to different positions of the interest groups and involved parties on the issue of flooding. An analysis of the situation was chosen as the subject of this research paper.
