Project Name: Drainage Improvement Near140th Street SW& Serene Way (RR 48837)


Project Number: RR 48837


Project Description:SnohomishCountyPublic Works, as part of an emergency response to address urban

lake flooding, installed approximately 600 feet of 18-inch pipe from an existing catch basin along Serene

Way to a new emergency overflow structure near theLakeSerene shoreline. The new overflow structure and

pipe system is located below grade within the existing140th Street SWright-of-way that is shared with the

Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife for boat ramp access toLakeSerene. The overflow structure

was installed landward of the lake’s ordinary high water mark at its terminus. The easternmost 16 feet of the

emergency project is located within the designated flood hazard area atLakeSerene, and an emergency flood

hazard permit approval was received for this work.


The new outlet augments the existing damaged lake outlet system, an 18-inch pipe across private property

that is located north of the new pipe system. The failed pipe has caused extraordinary high lake levels that

pose a threat to public infrastructure. The area in proximity to140th Street SWhas recently experienced

inundation with water due to the blocked outlet. The intent is to have the new outlet replace the existing

damaged system and provide a new outlet fromLakeSerene.


An additional pipe segment is essential to ensure long term functionality of the pipe system installed as part of

the initial emergency effort. Due to high water, it was not feasible at the time of the emergency response effort

to install the ultimate length of pipe needed to have the new outlet fully functional. This additional pipe segment

extends approximately 20 feet from the existing pipe terminus toLakeSerene.


Subsequent to the emergency response and proposal to add the additional pipe segment,SnohomishCounty

Public Works-Surface Water Management will also initiate an effort to identify a more long term solution to

the urban flooding occurring in proximity toLakeSerene. Once a proposed design has been developed,

application for permits would occur at that time.


Project Location: The project site is located in unincorporated southwestSnohomishCountyon140th Street

SW where the roadway terminates at a boat launch located at theLakeSerene shoreline, in Section 34,

Township 28 North, Range 4 East, W.M. ofSnohomishCountyofSnohomishCounty.
