King County DNRP
The Upper Carlson floodplain restoration project restores critical habitat for threatened Chinook Salmon and Steelhead in a high priority reach of the Snoqualmie River near Fall City, Washington. During the summer of 2014, the King County Water and Land Resources Division removed the 1600-ft long Upper Carlson levee and revetment and constructed a new, 1200 foot long set-back revetment to maintain flood protection for adjacent farms and roads. These actions have begun to restore natural river processes along this reach of Snoqualmie River and reconnect the river with 50 acres of forested floodplain.
