You are on the north side of Maddox Creek! The Maddox Creek restoration project was a partnership between Skagit County and the City of Mount Vernon. The project focused on the removal of the perched and failing Maddox Creek culvert, restoration of the stream channel, and planting of native vegetation to further stabilize the area. The preexisting culvert was 210 feet long, perched three feet, and covered by approximately 15,000 cubic yards of fill.

The Natural Resources Division of Skagit County Public Works is comprised of two Sections: Surface Water and Water Resources. A highly trained staff manages a number of programs to provide clean water, effective drainage, flood damage reduction, and restoration. Partnering with other local governments, dike and drainage districts, tribes, state and federal agencies, Skagit Conservation District, and local non-profit agencies, Skagit County effectively leverages local funding sources and resources for maximum efficiency and results.
