The City of Bothell annexed portions of unincorporated Snohomish County. As a surface water project in my Hydrogeology class (UWB BES 318) with Dr. Rob Turner, my colleague and I surveyed these properties. We collected data on culverts, ditches, bio-swales, and drains and then mapped the flow of water in these areas.
Problems noticed like clogged culverts, sewage leaks, and citizen concerns were to be collected and reported promptly to the city. All data was reported within an Excel file and mapped using ArcGIS.
