We finally heard back from King County and have no critical areas on the property that will affect construction or landscaping. This is great news as we had a lot of concerns about where this would land. We went from minimal wetlands, to significant wetlands, to management wetlands to no wetlands. This is a brutally opaque process and if you are doing a construction project expect this phase to take much longer than you expected.
We hired The Watershed Company, who are a Preferred Wetland Consultant for the county. I would highly recommend them. They definitely went to bat for us and didn’t just take the route of least resistance.
Here is their contact information:

Now we need to start on septic field design, well placement and pick a builder.
