Ericson hired to Valley organizations dedicated to flood protection, conservation

Erin Ericson

The Snoqualmie Valley Watershed Improvement District and the Snoqualmie Valley Preservation Alliance recently welcomed Erin Ericson as a new staff member.

Ericson, who had been a resource planner for the King Conservation District, will drive programs for both Valley organizations to help achieve their respective missions.

She was hired to assist landowners with drainage issues and help promote best practices for irrigation, especially new irrigators starting up as a result of the Watershed Improvement District’s new water bank.

She will also assist with implementing SVPA’s citizen scientist flood monitoring program and their efforts to manage local impacts of flooding.

A certified conservation planner, Ericson’s work as a Senior Resource Specialist for the King Conservation District included working with dairy farmers, interfacing with regulatory agencies, and assisting landowners with project permitting and code interpretation.
