Matt Rabe, Director of Public Affairs, Northwestern Division | U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

“Yesterday, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers met with the family of Eric Engle, the Walla Walla District employee who passed away while on duty June 29 at Dworshak Dam, to share with them the findings of our internal investigation. It was the determination of the investigating team that Mr. Engle’s death was not caused by the violation by USACE of any Army or USACE safety policies or practices. While we will never truly know exactly what happened, our teams will learn from this tragic incident and take steps to reduce the chances of this happening to any other employee.”
