Completion of the Lyon Creek Flood Mitigation Project eliminated recurrent flooding in Lake Forest Park that had frequently inundated the City's only fire station, over 20 homes and State Route 522.
The $6.94 million project also restored the lower reach of Lyon Creek, which is an urban salmon-bearing stream, with the removal of numerous fish barriers, installation of large woody debris, excavation of in-stream refuge pools and reestablishment of two wetlands.
