June 18, 2013

By Staff

The King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks’ Water and Land Resources Division, on behalf of the King County Flood Control District, is updating the flood management plan, which guides management of regionally significant river and stream flooding to:

  • Reduce risks from flood and channel migration hazards.
  • Avoid or minimize the environmental impacts of flood hazard management.
  • Reduce the long-term costs of flood hazard management.

A public review and comment period will be held from through July 12, and includes one public meeting where interested citizens can ask questions and make comments about the proposed update. The public meeting will be from 6-7:30 p.m. July 9 at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center, 8236 S.E. 24th St.

Draft update documents, including meeting information, can be found at www.kingcounty.gov/floodservices. Email comments to wlr-rivers@kingcounty.gov or mail them to Flood Plan Update, King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks, 201 S. Jackson St., Suite 600, Seattle, WA 98104.
