Flood Prevention Analysis of the Yellowstone River

As we approach the two year anniversary of the June 2022 flood event in Livingston, the City continues it's efforts to improve our understanding of the river and how to more fully prepare for flood events.

With the snow melting and water rising, the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is commencing work on an interagency study evaluating the existing levee’s flood reduction capabilities and assessing the potential impacts of overtopping and breaches.

A team from the USACE will be in Livingston to conduct a hydraulic analysis of the Yellowstone River from June 3rd to June 14th. Initial activities include data collection and site reconnaissance. USACE surveyors will survey the levee embankment, bridges over the Yellowstone River and tributaries, and the first-floor elevations of residential and commercial buildings. They will complete the work in no more than two weeks.
