The King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks’ Water and Land Resources Division, on behalf of the Flood Control District, is meeting July 9 on Mercer Island to update the county’s management plan. The plan guides the 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 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.
Draft update documents, including meeting information, can be found at www.kingcounty.gov/floodservices.
Comments can be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or to Attn: Flood Plan Update, King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks, 201 S. Jackson St., Suite 600, Seattle, Wash., 98104.
