The King County Flood Control District’s Board of Supervisors has approved $700,000 in Flood Reduction Grants to the cities of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park.

The funds will facilitate flood control projects that address stream blockages and improve water quality and habitat.

“I am pleased to support funding for these crucial projects that will protect businesses and homes from urban flooding in Boeing and Lyon Creeks,” said Supervisor Rod Dembowski, whose district includes the cities of Shoreline and Lake Forest Park. 
“I am pleased this work will also enable us to remove fish barriers and improve overall water quality in Boeing and Lyon Creeks.”

Entrance to culverts at Innis Arden Way
Shoreline will receive $300,000 to support design and permitting to remove the Hidden Lake Dam and spillway in Shoreline, restoring a section of Boeing Creek, and replacing culverts under NW Innis Arden Way.

The goal is to safely convey creek flood flows and manage sediment through this steep urban watershed to reduce the possibility of catastrophic flooding.

Lake Forest Park will receive $400,000 to remove a culvert that collapsed during a flood, with the debris and sediment falling into Lyon Creek.

The collapsed culvert is in the stream channel and is creating a flood hazard that could impact homes, local businesses, and a state highway. The funds will aid Lake Forest Park in developing plans and securing the necessary permits to remove the collapsed culvert and restore 700 feet of stream channel.

The Flood Reduction Grant Program is in its 5th year. It was created to help jurisdictions, school districts, and homeowner associations deal with flooding problems not caused by major rivers in King County.

The King County Flood Control District is a special purpose government created to provide funding and policy oversight for flood protection projects and programs in King County. 

The Flood Control District’s Board is composed of the members of the King County Council. The Water and Land Resources Division of the King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks develops and implements the approved flood protection projects and programs.
