The City of Normandy Park is working with local residents and other jurisdictions to improve Miller and Walker Creeks in three ways:

  • Manage water quantity to lessen flooding that harms property and reduce the high flows that damage stream ecology
  • Make water cleaner to benefit people, stream health, and Puget Sound overall
  • Increase native, streamside vegetation to improve habitat for people, fish, and wildlife

Because Normandy Park includes just the lower several miles of Miller and Walker Creeks, the city works cooperatively with Burien, SeaTac, the Port of Seattle, and King County on these issues.

Visit the stream stewardship website to learn more about:

  • The natural resources of the creeks, including photo tours of each creek from the headwaters to the Sound,
  • How your neighbors are working to improve the creeks,
  • Volunteer opportunities,
  • Monitoring information on the health of the creeks, and
  • What you can do to help
