The Tualco Valley lies at the heart of the Snohomish River Basin, where the Skykomish and Snoqualmie Rivers meet to form the Snohomish River. Haskell and Riley Sloughs flow through the Tualco Valley. They have provided critical salmon habitat along with irrigation for abundant agriculture. However, both sloughs have degraded, harming salmon habitat, streamflow, and drainage. There are also aging and damaged levees in the valley that are a flood risk and harm salmon habitat. Tulalip and project partners will work with Tualco Valley landowners and stakeholders to understand community needs. The goal is to design project alternatives that simultaneously enhance environmental, agricultural, and flood resiliency to make the valley better for people and our iconic salmon species.
