Drainage work may lessen flooding on NE 124th

  • Written by Lisa Allen

Senior engineer with King County Natural Resources and Parks, Chase Barton has spent years studying flooding and flood patterns in the Lower Snoqualmie Valley. Over time, he noticed changes happening in the behavior of winter floodwaters, especially in the area just south of Duvall near the Tolt pipeline. “The water wasn’t draining from the fields after flooding,” he said during a recent tour of the Tolt Pipeline Protection Project which includes drainage improvements.  “Instead of draining out, like it should, water has been sitting in the fields for lengthy periods of time which also means more water stays over Northeast 124th.”

As the population in the Valley has grown, Northeast 124th has become a crucial corridor that often is closed by high water in the winter months, causing long traffic backups.  The project to protect the pipeline and also deal with the drainage issues has been in the works for some time, and finally was given the go-ahead for this year.
