Dairy & Agriculture
Interruptions to production and supply chains caused by flooded or failed culverts can stop ag economies cold. Problem culverts can lead to flooded fields, lost access to key forage or livestock areas, damaged equipment, or injured livestock, and can cause animal waste to enter streams. A reinvestment in Tillamook County's road infrastructure is a reinvestment in one of the cornerstones of its economy and community.
"If feed can't get in and cows don't get fed, milk can't get from farm to the cheese factory and cheese can't get out. Highway 6 and Highway 22 are very important to all the farms in Tillamook County. If they fail or water is backed up then we have problems."
