Matanuska-Susitna Borough

MSB Evaluating Erosion Issue in Talkeetna

Mat-Su | Stefan Hinman | Thursday, September 07, 2023

The Mat-Su Borough is evaluating the high-water erosion at the end of Main Street in Talkeetna.

There has been significant erosion of the revetment near the confluence of the Susitna, Chulitna, and Talkeetna Rivers.

At this point, there are four small cabins that may be affected.

Borough staff and the US Army Corps of Engineers were on site today to evaluate the situation. We are continuing to monitor potential impacts on public infrastructure and other private property.

The Borough is reviewing options for staging additional material in the area.

We are not recommending evacuations at this time.

All updates on flooding events in the Borough are published at:
