Technical Memos from King County


This analysis is a "first-cut" at examining the sizing of stormwater infrastructure based on potential future precipitation scenarios.

King County is asking stormwater utilities in the regional that have modeling capacity to help with one part of this additional analysis and report findings back into the larger effort - a "many hands make light worl" approach. the "crowd sourcing" memo provides technical information on the type of modeling analysis needed. For more information on this effort, please contact Jeff Burkey, King County.
