We're building a strategy to improve the Sammamish River
Visit the online open house to learn more about the Sammamish River Capital Investment Strategy. The strategy will guide future projects to reduce flood risks and protect fish and wildlife habitat throughout the river corridor.
The goals of the Sammamish River Capital Investment Strategy (CIS) are to:
- Develop a capital investment strategy (CIS) and maintenance plan that meets the flood risk reduction, fish habitat, and navigation requirements of the O&M Manual. Use a watershed approach to include Lake Sammamish, Bear Creek, Issaquah Creek, and Willowmoor Floodplain Restoration Project considerations. Ensure the CIS reflects current jurisdictional boundaries and regulatory requirements.
- Work with partners to determine a strategy for implementing the 2002 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Sammamish River Corridor Action Plan. The 2002 plan was developed to address habitat problems related to the original project design and construction.
- Support a Corps of Engineers update to the O&M Manual that will support implementation of these projects.
