King County Flood Control District is preparing a Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement (PEIS), which will analyze alternatives for flood protection that could be included in the Plan. The PEIS describes potential environmental impacts and measures to reduce or eliminate them. Because each alternative includes a variety of flood protection projects that make up a “program” of actions, a PEIS is being prepared. The PEIS will evaluate the potential impacts of the projects identified in each alternative.
For more information about the upcoming projects, download the reference materials linked below.
Agencies, affected tribes and members of the public are invited to comment on the scope of the PEIS. You may comment on alternatives, probable significant adverse impacts, mitigation measures, and required permits or other approvals.
The scoping process begins on November 28, 2018, and closes January 29, 2019 at 5:00 pm.
