Eagle Rock Timber, Idaho Falls, Idaho, was awarded the contract on September 10, 2007. The landmark is protected under the National Historic Preservation Act for its cultural and historic significance. The monument was designated as a national historic landmark in 1961.
"The Tribes and Reclamation wish to protect the site from future losses due to bank erosion," said Chris Ketchum, Assistant Area Manager of the Snake River Area Office. "This site has great cultural significance and it is our obligation to help preserve it."
The stabilization project will use stone revetment, riprap, to eliminate stream bank damage along the south side of the river channel. For several years the Tribes and Reclamation have worked together to seek long term solutions to stabilize the eroded bank.
