• 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 June 14 to July 12, and includes one public meeting.

The public meeting will be held on July 9 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Mercer Island Community and Event Center, 8236 S.E. 24th Street.
