Lyon Creek Flood Mitigation Project Restores Salmon Habitat in Lake Forest Park

Pacific Northwest salmon sustain ecosystems we depend upon, yet road and highway culverts block them from reaching upstream nesting redds. A 2013 court decision mandates culvert infrastructure be replaced with more environmentally sound solutions. Lyon Creek Flood Mitigation (LCFM) is an award winning example of 21st-century green infrastructure improving wetland parks near a suburban shopping center.
