Why is the City of Redmond restoring the Monticello Creek Watershed?

3 months ago

The Redmond City Council identified enhancing and protecting streams as a necessary measure to maintain the health and sustainability of Redmond’s environment.

Development alters the way rainfall flows over the land to streams. Increased roads, roofs and parking lots can cause large volumes of stormwater to drain into streams all at once, causing flooding, erosion and other problems.

While the areas within the Monticello Creek Watershed are fairly healthy, thoughtful planning can address the watershed’s current health, and help ensure it is healthy into the future.
