The Seneca Drive culvert along Thunderbird Creek is filling up with gravel and needs to be cleaned (it was last cleaned in September 2018). If not cleaned, it would continue to plug with additional debris and could cause erosion, road damage, or even flood homes. Public Works is currently working with the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife on a permit to clean the culvert.
Cleaning City funded
Resources have not been secured for a long term solution.
Project Update (11/15/2019): Cleaning is anticipated for during summer 2020 or sooner. During low water flow, and will require Seneca Drive to have daytime closures during the work.
