King County Flood Control District repairing levee south of Carnation

King County is repairing 70-feet of Tolt River Levee with completion expected by the end of August.

King County has begun work repairing 70-feet of Tolt River Levee near Carnation and plans to be finished by the end of August.

The county, which is the service provider to the King County Flood Control District, began work on the Remlinger Levee on Monday, July 30. The work site is at the point where the Snoqualmie Valley Trail meets with NE 32nd Street, just south of Carnation.

The repair is part of the regular low-flow levee inspection, said Michelle Clark, executive director of the Flood District. Each year, they do inspections of the low-flow levees in the area to see if any are damaged or are in need of repair. Maintaining them in this way helps to prevent larger-scale damage or failure of the levees in the future.

Crews are sent out to survey the area to determine whether or not repairs are needed. In this case, the Remlinger Levee has been damaged by flooding and erosion, so crews will be working every weekday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. along NE 32nd Street to fix it. Fortunately, the portion of the trail by the levee does not need to be closed down, but traffic and construction noise to the the heavy equipment can be expected.

In the news release, construction was estimated to be complete by Aug. 31, but Clark said it could possibly be sooner than that.
