Formation

In response to the devastating 2007 flood, basin interests came together and signed an interlocal agreement to form the Chehalis Basin Flood Authority.  The purpose of the Flood Authority is to develop a basin-wide set of solutions to address flooding issues.

Funding and guidance for the Flood Authority is provided for through several pieces of legislation and agreements:

  • In 2008, the Washington State Legislature appropriated funds to help address the impacts of catastrophic flooding.  ESHB 3374 and ESHB 3375 included funding for the Flood Authority.
  • In 2008, the Flood Authority members signed an interlocal agreement and sent a letter to the Office of Financial Management (OFM) requesting funding.
  • Finally, in 2011, the legislature adopted ESHB 2020, the House Capital Budget, with additional funds for the Flood Authority and a list of action items (see Section 30).   OFM signed an updated agreement with the Flood Authority, including a list of required deliverables.
