Landslide hazard maps
New landslide hazard maps are available for the public to use through King County’s online iMap tool.
King County Biologist Chris Gregersen and crew were collecting macroinvertebrate samples as part of the county’s ongoing water quality monitoring on the Tolt river near Carnation recently, when they set a #GoPro camera in the water next to several pink salmon redds near the sampling site, and the fish put on quite a show!
