The Downstream blog brings you news about King County’s water and land and how we’re managing and protecting these most valuable natural resources today and for the future.

Here you’ll find posts about how we protect water quality and habitat, manage rivers and storm runoff, conserve land and promote agriculture, and all the science that goes in to doing the work — work that is done by engineers, biologists, ecologists, environmental planners, chemists, geologists and a wide array of other scientists and these are their stories.
