Save the Wood Creek Forest

Several Valley View Homes fell down the Wood Creek Ravine


Three houses in the Valley View neighborhood were red-tagged by the city of Everett. One of these three houses slid down the bank, and the others are deemed to be unsafe. The culprit was excess water known as 'Armaggeddon Creek'. The water is racing down the sandy loam soils of the bank, which has up to 40% slope causing landslides.

Here is the excerpt from Kiro7:

"Neighbors in an Everett neighborhood nicknamed "Armageddon Creek" by the people who live there because houses are slipping down a hillside said the city is to blame for the shifting ground.

The shifting hillside is near Panaview Boulevard and Burl Place in Everett.

The stairs on the side of one home that has nearly slipped off a steep hill used to lead to the front door, but now appear to be going nowhere.

Three houses have been red tagged by the city, meaning it is unsafe to occupy the homes. But neighbors claim 10 more houses in the area are in danger.

Video from Chopper 7 showed how the ground is moving and deep cracks opening in the yards and foundations of homes."

Wood Creek Sinkholes have damaged homes and property



This is a picture of a sinkhole from one of my neighbor's yards. There were a total of 5 sinkholes in these two yards!

The sink-hole was at least 50 feet deep, and it swallowed entire trees, including a classic mustang.

The Valley View side of the bank has more sinkholes than the Eastmont side. I can take some pictures of the existing sink-hole if you think that it may be useful. Here are the relevant past articles found in the news:

Stewards of Wood Creek Everett Mission

To protect and preserve the Wood Creek forest for future generations through conservation and stewardship.

Footer Logo The City of Everett has proposed the sale of about 92.5 acres of undeveloped green belt property. Wood Creek lies in the valley between the Valley View and Eastmont neighborhoods. Wood Creek was the main source of drinking water for the city of Everett between 1898 and 1916, until the Sultan River water project was completed. The land and the creek is a critical habitat for a variety of animals and wildlife. Additionally, the land is unstable and many parts of the land are critically sloped. This group is for anyone opposing this proposal and for trying to preserve this critical land.
