The best time to prepare for a flood, is before a flood
EVERETT, Wash., November 2, 2022 – While many Western Washington residents welcomed the return of the fall rainy season, increased precipitation has prompted flood concerns in some areas. To assist residents before, during and after a flood event, Snohomish County departments – Conservation and Natural Resources Surface Water Management (SWM), Department of Emergency Management (DEM), Planning and Development Services (PDS), and Public Works (PW) – are providing information and tools to assist residents with flood response and recovery.
The Snohomish County Public Works is responsible for approximately 1,600 miles of county roads, more than 200 bridges and manages about 200 traffic control signals. The department also processes nearly 600,000 tons of garbage per year. Its mission is to focus on safety and mobility while practicing fiscal responsibility and preserving the environment. Public Works has won numerous state and national honors for its work and is the largest department within Snohomish County government with approximately 500 employees plus seasonal staff. Its main office is located at 3000 Rockefeller Ave, Everett, WA 98201.
