King County Project on the Table

King County (WA) has launched a 30-day public comment period for the Pacific Right Bank Flood Protection Project.

According to the officials, this is the first step in the development of the project along the White River.

The new project is expected to substantially improve flood protection in the City of Pacific as well as environmental conditions along this stretch of the river,” the county said. “It complements another flood protection project, the Countyline Levee Setback Project, which was completed in 2017. The project will extend from the BNSF Railway to Government Canal.”

The county will also hold a public meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 27, at the City of Pacific Community Center, where residents and other interested parties will have a chance to learn more about how the environmental review process is being conducted.

The environmental review for this project will include the preparation of an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). The first phase in preparing an EIS is to determine the scope or extent of the environmental review.

Deadline for sending comments on the proposed project is April 13.
