It's more than water...
It's what we drink.
It's what we eat.
It's who we are.
WHAT WE DO
DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR DRINKING WATER COMES FROM?
65% of drinking water comes from rivers and streams –
all the more reason to protect and restore them.
The Green River is the source of water for a regional partnership formed by the City of Kent, the Covington Water District, the Lakehaven Utility District and Tacoma Water.
The Middle Green River Subwatershed starts at River Mile 32 just east of Auburn and stretches to the Howard Hanson Dam.
It includes two major tributaries:
Soos Creek on the north side of the river, draining Kent, Covington, Maple Valley, and Black Diamond and Newaukum Creek on the south side of the river, draining the Enumclaw area.
