The City of Burien is in the final phase of developing a Stormwater Management Action Plan (SMAP) to improve water conditions for fish and wildlife in Miller Creek. The SMAP identifies steps the City can take to reduce the harmful effects of stormwater runoff.
With your help, the project team chose to prioritize Miller Creek with a specific focus on the Downtown Burien neighborhood. Stormwater runoff from Downtown Burien is not likely to improve without intervention from the City.
The community was invited to help prioritize projects and programs in the Downtown neighborhood that could improve the condition of Miller Creek. This feedback was used to develop seven stormwater solutions.
Solutions include physical, built projects and programs that change the way land is managed. Learn more about the solutions in the video below, or read more about them on the project page.
The community is now invited to review these proposed solutions and provide feedback via email. The draft action plan will be available for review in February 2023 after feedback for these stormwater solutions has been collected and incorporated.
