Flood control board recommends grant for City of Kenmore

Tuesday, August 19, 2014

The Executive Committee of the King County Flood Control District approved, and sent to the full Flood Control District Board of Supervisors, recommendations for grants aimed at reducing the impacts of local flooding. The funds, approved at the Executive committee’s August 18 meeting, are from the newly created grant program and will focus on flood prevention as well as flood mitigation.

The new grant program targets flood reduction projects throughout King County. A total of $2.6 million in grants are available in 2014, with the funds being awarded on a competitive basis by the Flood Control District. Eligible applicants included homeowner associations, private non-profit organizations or associations, schools, special districts, tribes and King County jurisdictions. Funded projects must be completed within 36 months of receiving funds.

The list of recommended projects includes the City of Kenmore which was recommended for $330,000 grant for the NE 192nd St Culvert Replacement. Little Swamp Creek regularly exceeds the current capacity of the existing culvert and floods over the roadway of NE 192nd St. The City is looking to install a culvert to eliminate the flooding at this location. The culvert must be fish‐passable to meet state Department of Fish and Wildlife requirements.
