Mitigation and monitoring program
Restoring natural areas after construction
King County’s capital projects help the regional sewer system support a vibrant, growing area. For over half a century, treating our wastewater has helped to protect our region’s livability, health, and environment.

Welcome to the new Web page for King County WTD’s Mitigation and Monitoring Program! You can learn about this critical program that supports restoration of natural areas affected by sewer construction projects. You can find information about restoration areas and projects, read blog articles, and visit other sites that will help you learn how agencies and all of us can support a healthy, natural environment.
When capital projects impact natural areas–streams, wetlands, and other critical areas–our Mitigation and Monitoring (M/M) Program steps in to make sure that restoration is successful. The M/M Program uses the best available science, ongoing problem-solving, and innovation to return an affected area to as good or better condition than before construction. The program team enables restored sites to function on their own once monitoring is complete.
