SDCI customer service areas remain closed until further notice and continue offering services online. King County has approval from the State Department of Health to allow all private construction activities that are low-risk and adhere to strict COVID 19 Job site Requirements. The City of Seattle has issued requirements for construction projects seeking inspections. The City WILL NOT INSPECT any site that does not follow these requirements.


Summary: Environmentally critical areas (ECAs) such as streams, wetlands, shorelines and steep slopes represent the most environmentally sensitive and productive habitat in the city of Seattle. Vegetation restoration projects in these areas can play a critical role in improving the health and function of these areas. This Tip will guide you in conducting vegetation restoration on your property. It provides step-by-step instructions to design and implement a vegetation restoration project as well as links to additional information. While a simple backyard restoration project can be accomplished by any homeowner, technical assistance is also available if additional support is desired.
