Description:
Abstract:
Channel migration hazards for seven King County rivers: Middle White River, Raging River, Tolt River, Three Forks area of Snoqualmie River, Cedar River, Green River, and the South Fork of the Skykomish River. The Cedar River was updated April 2015, the SF Skykomish June 2017, and the Tolt July 2018. In December 2019, the Middle White River was added, the Raging River was updated, and a revision was made to the updated Cedar CMZ.
Purpose:
This dataset can be use to estimate the channel migration for seven rivers: White River, Raging River, Tolt River, Three Forks area of Snoqualmie River, Cedar River, Green River, and the South Fork of the Skykomish River.
Supplemental_Information:
There are several rapidly migrating river systems in King County. Studies (cited below) have been prepared by or for the King County Department of Natural Resources to map and describe areas of channel migration hazard on sections of seven King County rivers: middle White River, Raging River, Tolt River, Three Forks area of Snoqualmie River, Cedar River, Green River, and the South Fork of the Skykomish River. In each study, the maximum probable future limits of channel migration were defined using historic meander belt widths and other geomorphic features. Land within these limits is classified according to the relative degree of hazard from channel migration, based upon historic rates of channel migration and the presence of major bank protection structures that protect arterial roads and subdivisions.

Data_Quality_Information:
Attribute_Accuracy:
Attribute_Accuracy_Report: Unknown.
Logical_Consistency_Report:
This dataset meets standard coverage QA/QC checks such as labelerrors, nodeerrors.
Completeness_Report:
This dataset covers only the following areas of King County: middle White River, Raging River, Tolt River, South Fork Skykomish River, Three Forks area of Snoqualmie River, Cedar River, and Green River.
Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy:
Horizontal_Positional_Accuracy_Report:
CMZ boundaries typically have positional accuracy of 0-30 feet, in some areas with few control points such as eastern King County the positional accuracy could be as much as 50-100 feet. The data should not be reproduced or used at a scale larger than 1:2400.

Process_Description:
The Raging River Channel Migration Zone (CMZ) study and map and Middle White River CMZ were completed in 2019. A smaller portion of the effective Cedar CMZ mapping was reassessed in 2019, resulting in an adjustment to the mapped hazard areas.
