Your Update on What's Happening at the King County Council  

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

This weekend wraps up Flood Awareness Month in King County, during which the King County Flood Control District and King County work to raise awareness about the risks of flooding, which is the most common natural disaster in our area, and encourage everyone to be prepared this flood season. 

As we anticipate more rain next week, the sunny weekend ahead is a great chance to make sure that storm drains, gutters, and ditches around your home are clear so they can help carry water away from your property. These outlets are easily clogged by leaves, mud, branches, and trash, which can contribute to flooding. 

If you see a flooded drain or street, report it as soon as possible. Go to “Report a Problem” at kingcounty.gov/stormwater to find your city contact. If your property is in unincorporated King County, call the Drainage and Water Quality Complaint investigators at 206-477-4811.

I hope you enjoy the sunshine this weekend!

All my best,

Reagan Dunn signature
