Project Purpose

The purpose of the Mount Vernon Downtown Flood Protection Project is to protect the City's downtown area from flood damage up to and including the 100-year event on the Skagit River. In addition to flood protection, the project's goals include enhancing public access to the shoreline and river and maintaining the existing availability of parking in the downtown area.
