Mission & Vision

The King County Flood Control District brings a comprehensive approach to flood management and provides funding to improve the County's aging and inadequate flood protection facilities.

The Flood Control District adopted the King County Flood Hazard Management Plan, in 2007. It serves as a blueprint for county management of the 500 flood control facilities, and features capital improvement projects as well as floodplain management programs.

The Plan identifies up to $335 million in priority repairs and upgrades, including work on flood containment levees and bank stabilization projects. It also provides for a regional flood warning center and emergency response, flood facility maintenance, public education and outreach, mapping and technical studies, citizen inquiry and public response.
