- Why have we not had such severe floods since 1967?
The Chena river now diverts into the Tanana river when the water level rises too high. The Tanana is lined with dikes now to keep it from flooding Fairbanks.
- Briefly describe at least one positive outcome that emerged as a result of the flood damage and losses.
The Flood Act of 1968 passed, partially due to the Fairbanks flood, giving the city of Fairbanks funds to establish the Chena River Lakes Flood Control Project.
The Fairbanks Memorial Hospital was established after the community came together to fund it and flood control projects were the main positive outcomes of the floods.
