Description The Department's investigation was designed to examine every possible contributing factor. The investigators hoped to:
1. Determine what natural conditions existed in the river system prior to the drowning incident;
2. Determine how existing conditions (at the time of the incident) differed from the natural conditions;
3. Determine if the unanticipated surge in the system was due to natural phenomena;
4. Determine if the surge could be attributed to one or both of the man-made flow control facilities in the river system and under what conditions those facilities operate;
5. Determine whether man-controlled operations cause these surges on a repetitive basis and what procedures are practiced to protect downstream water users;
6. Determine what practical recommendations can be made to prevent a recurrence of this type of incident.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
