are on higher ground and only SUbjected to shallow flooding, and proposed a

split floodway, which would result' in access problems.

The county is concerned

about access, but offered no solution.

the split floodway around

under the Technical Services program.

Schofield will provide the Corps with several proposed floodways to analyze.
