OCI is the prime consultant leading a multi-disciplinary team for the City of Redmond’s Monticello Creek Watershed Restoration Plan. Services include: documenting existing watershed deficiencies; documenting potential future issues associated with development or anticipated surface and stormwater changes in the region or watershed; and, identifying, ranking and preparing conceptual designs for stormwater repair, retrofit, in-stream, and new facilities projects that will restore overall stream health. In 2013, Redmond’s City Council adopted a Watershed Management Plan and selected Monticello Creek as a priority watershed for restoration. OCI’s team worked collaboratively with the City to develop a Public Involvement Plan to solicit feedback from the community, including both online and in-person open houses that provide opportunities for comments from neighbors and stakeholders. Following the public involvement phase of the project, OCI will develop designs for three selected projects to a pre-design level as required by the Washington Department of Ecology grant funding.
