Project Summary

The project will relocate an existing stormwater outfall to a more suitable location.

Project Benefits

  • Correcting existing drainage issues

Project Description

The primary goal is to collect and re-route surface water through existing County right-of-way to Lake Samish. The current drainage system does not directly flow into Lake Samish. Presently, the stormwater exits County right-of-way and flows overland to the lake resulting in flooding during severe rain events. The project accounts for the runoff from the contributing areas, upsizes the drainage ditches and culverts along Shallow Shores Drive  and creates a new outfall into the lake at Bass Street.
