Project Benefits

  • Correcting existing drainage issues

Project Description

The primary goal is to collect and re-route surface water through existing County right-of-way to Lake Samish. The current drainage system does not directly flow into Lake Samish, stormwater exits County right-of-way and flows overland to the lake. The project will quantify the runoff from the contributing areas and will evaluate the drainage ditches and culverts along Shallow Shores Drive. Undersized systems will be identified and the project will replace or modify the conveyance to improve the region's drainage. The design will also evaluate possible stormwater treatment systems that could be incorporated in future projects.
