The Lake Forest Park Public Works team and Building Official have been working diligently to resolve the cloudy stream issue occurring in Lyon Creek.

The source of the problem was dirt and sediment washing into the storm water system due to grading associated with construction of a single-family home. The sediment traveled from the storm water system to Lyon Creek.

A stop-work order has been issued and appropriate contacts at the Washington State Department of Ecology have been alerted to the situation. Measures are being taken to avoid further sediment migration.

Thank you to those residents who contacted the City with this concern, and a big thanks to the Public Works crew.
