Welcome! 

Over 45,000 people in King County live in places vulnerable to flooding, placing their families and communities at risk. Over the next two years King County will update its Flood Hazard Management Plan. The flood plan sets a strategy that affects people who live, work, and go to school in King County every rainy day. The flood plan is our guide for managing flood risks along our rivers, creeks, and shorelines. To create a flood resilient future, the flood plan must incorporate and needs of our community.  

Some people are more at risk of flooding based on where they live. Due to unjust historic practices, some people are also less able to prepare or recover from flood disasters and have had less opportunity to share their ideas and perspectives. We’d like to understand what is important to you and how you may like to be involved in the flood plan. 

 

We’d like to hear from you

Your response to this short survey will help shape how King County engages with community members in developing the next flood plan. The survey is anonymous. It should take approximately 10 minutes to complete.  We will review all responses by July 31, 2022 and incorporate feedback into our engagement plan. If you would like to know how community feedback was used, please sign up for flood plan email updates.
