Corps to host Foster Dam construction info session

Published Nov. 5, 2012

PORTLAND, Ore. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will host a public information session about the upgrade of the Foster Dam Adult Fish Collection Facility Wednesday evening, Nov. 14 at Foster Elementary School, 5526 Poplar St. in Foster, Ore.

Sweet Home area residents are invited to drop by any time between 6 and 8 p.m. to meet with Corps staff members and learn about the purpose, schedule, benefits and impacts of the construction, as well as other Corps activities along the South Santiam River and elsewhere in the Willamette Basin.

“People have a lot of questions about how this project will affect them,” said Erik Petersen, operations manager for the Corps’ Willamette Valley Project, which oversees Foster Dam and 12 others in the Willamette Basin.  “Representatives from the dam, my project leadership team, and Portland District’s Construction and Project Management branches will be there with answers.”

Construction is underway at the dam itself and in Wiley Park and will continue through March 2014.  For more information, visit
