Snohomish County Drainage Improvements – Monroe WA

Description

“In Snohomish County, farm land conditions will be improved by a drainage system affecting seven sections of land between the cities of Snohomish and Monroe. Cooperating with the State of Washington, sponsoring the project, WPA will invest $14,989, according to an announcement from WPA Administrator Don G. Abel.

Clearing, deepening and Widening existing ditches and constructing a new ditch will tend to remove the danger of floods and simultaneously help prevent erosion. Although this work is sponsored by the state, no additional taxes or assessments will be levied. Similarly private property rights will not be violated as easements have been obtained from the owners of property adjacent to the project.”
