Bothell City Hazard Mitigation Plan
Bothell has done an incredible job on their hazard mitigation plan. Here is a link to the plan. Bothell Hazard Mitigation Plan
There are some key things about this plan we’d like to point out, that may be useful to know.
Bothell and surrounding areas have a higher potential for flooding due to the North Creek. Although there are currently levees in place to prevent flooding, if these fail there would be no way to prevent major flooding into the residential and business areas.
The mitigation plan outlines what the major hazards are for the Bothell area. The following four hazards are of concern to us since they can lead to water and fire damage.
The hazards listed below are classified by Probability / Vulnerability:
1. Severe Weather – High / Moderate
2. Flooding – High / Moderate
3. Landslides – Moderate / Moderate
4. Earthquake – Moderate / High
In the history of hazards the plan outlines the various floods, wind storms, or other severe weather occurring in the past that has caused major damage. It is clear that proper preparation for such events is necessary, since these hazards will inevitably occur in the future. See our blog for helpful ideas for how to prepare for various hazards.
