Executive Summary Soundview Consultants LLC (SVC) has been contracted by Harbor Homes (Applicant) to perform a wetland delineation and fish and wildlife habitat assessment to assist with planning for proposed site development on a 2.46-acre property located in the City of Redmond at 13437 and 13441 NE 100th Street in Kirkland, Washington. The subject property is situated in the Northwest ¼ of Section 3, Township 25 North, Range 5 East, W.M. (King County Tax Parcel Numbers 0325059035, 0325059208, and 0325059211). This report incorporates comments made by the City of Redmond (City) to the previous report by SVC dated August 24, 2018. SVC investigated the subject property for the presence of potentially-regulated wetlands, aquatic areas, fish and wildlife habitat, and/or priority species in June and July 2018. Using current methodology, the site assessments identified and delineated the boundaries of one potentially-regulated wetland (Wetland A) located on the southern portion of the subject property and a significant majority of the wetland area extends offsite to the east for which SVC does not have access. As noted in the City review comments of the August 2018 report by SVC, an assessment of the offsite portions of the wetland was conducted for the Rose Hill West Property. The City provided SVC with a technical memorandum by Raedeke Associates, Inc. (Raedeke) dated September 25, 2018, which addressed City comments for the Rose Hill assessment conducted by Raedeke in 2017. The 2018 Raedeke memorandum shows offsite portions of the wetland and identifies the wetland as a Category II riverine wetland with a 150-foot buffer. The Raedeke memorandum was a response to City comments and not the complete original assessment document. As such, the document provided to SVC did not contain any wetland ratings maps or data forms.

SVC delineated the OHW of one stream onsite identified as Stream Z, also known as Gun Club Creek, along the southern boundary of the subject property at the bottom of a steep slope. Based on field observations, Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) mapping, SVC identified the stream as transitioning from a perennial non-fish bearing Class IV stream to a fish-bearing, non-salmonid fish bearing stream Class III stream approximately 500 feet downstream of the subject property to the southeast. The City cited the Raedeke assessment which classified the stream as a Class II salmonid bearing stream; however, the original Raedeke report, which should contain a detailed assessment of the stream, was not provided to SVC by the City as a part of SVC’s public records request. In order to move the project forward, the Applicant has agreed to adopt the Raedeke wetland rating and stream classification and provide the same 150-foot standard wetland buffer and 100-foot stream buffer with an additional outer 50-foot stream buffer within Open Space Tract C. Since wetland ratings maps from the Raedeke assessment were not provided to SVC, the ratings maps as previously reported by SVC are provided in Appendix E. No other potentially-regulated wetlands, aquatic areas, or fish and wildlife habitat were identified within 300 feet of the site.

The Applicant proposes to develop a 9-lot short plat on the subject property, including the single-family residences, access road, utilities, stormwater mitigation facilities and other associated infrastructure. In order to avoid a potential erosion hazard associated with the steep slope located along the stream channel, the Applicant has agreed to discharge detained, treated stormwater generated by the plat at the bottom of the steep slope adjacent to Gun Club Creek using a dispersal trench with willow stakes planted downslope of the trench to provide additional slope stability and erosion control. With the exception of the stormwater discharge location, the proposed plat

development is located entirely upland of the identified onsite wetland and stream and their associated protective buffers and building setbacks. The plat provides a protective open space tract across the onsite portions of the stream, Wetland A and their buffers. In addition, an open space protective tract between the buffers and the proposed plat development is provided to accommodate the steep slopes adjacent to the stream and wetland. With the conservative wetland and stream buffers and the increased buffering provided by the additional open space tract, this plat is not anticipated to impact Wetland A, the stream, or their associated protective buffers.

The table below summarizes the wetlands and streams and identifies the potential regulatory status by local, state, and federal agencies.

Chapter 1. Introduction Soundview Consultants LLC (SVC) has been contracted by Harbor Homes (Client) to perform a wetland delineation and fish and wildlife habitat assessment to assist with planning for proposed site development on a 2.46-acre property located in the City of Redmond at 13437 and 13441 NE 100th Street in Kirkland, Washington. The subject property is situated in the Northwest ¼ of Section 3, Township 25 North, Range 5 East, W.M. (King County Tax Parcel Numbers 0325059035, 0325059208, and 0325059211).

The purpose of this revised wetland and fish and wildlife habitat assessment report is to document the presence of potentially-regulated wetlands, fish and wildlife habitat, and/or priority species on or near the subject property. As noted in the City review comments of the August 2018 report by SVC, an assessment of the offsite portions of the wetland was conducted for the Rose Hill West Property. The City provided SVC with a technical memorandum by Raedeke Associates, Inc. (Raedeke), dated September 25, 2018, which addressed City comments for the Rose Hill assessment conducted by Raedeke in 2017. The Applicant is proposing to develop a plat for nine single-family residential lots on the subject property and has chosen to adopt the wetland rating and stream classifications provided by in the 2017 Raedeke assessment.

This report provides conclusions and recommendations regarding:

• Site description and area of assessment; • Background research of potentially-regulated critical areas and habitats within the vicinity of

the proposed project; • Identification and assessment of potentially-regulated wetlands and other hydrologic features; • Identification and assessment of potentially-regulated aquatic areas and other fish and wildlife

habitat; • Standard buffer recommendations, building setbacks, and development limitations; • Existing site map detailing identified critical areas and standard buffers; and • Supplemental information necessary for local regulatory review.

Chapter 3. Methods SVC investigated and assessed wetlands, drainages, and other potentially-regulated fish and wildlife habitat on and within 300 feet of the subject property on June 22, 2018 and July 11, 2018. All wetland and stream determinations were made using observable vegetation, hydrology, and soils in conjunction with data from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) topographic maps, the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Soil Survey, King County iMAP, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) National Wetlands Inventory (NWI), the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) Priority Habitats and Species (PHS) and SalmonScape mapping tools, the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) water typing system, the Soil Survey of King County (Snyder et al., 1973), City of Redmond Maps-Critical Area Mapping, local precipitation data, and various orthophotographic resources. Appendix A contains further details for the methods and tools used to prepare this report.

Wetland boundaries were determined using the routine approach described in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Wetlands Delineation Manual (Environmental Laboratory, 1987) and modified according to the guidelines established in the Regional Supplement to the Corps of Engineers Wetland Delineation Manual: Western Mountains, Valleys, and Coast Region (Version 2.0) (USACE, 2010). Qualified wetland scientists marked the boundary of the onsite wetland with orange surveyor’s flagging labeled alpha-numerically and tied to 3-foot lath or vegetation along the wetland boundary. Pink surveyor’s flagging was labeled alpha-numerically and tied to 3-foot lath or vegetation at formal sampling locations to mark the points where detailed data was collected (DP-1 and DP-2). Additional tests pits were excavated at regular intervals inside and outside of the wetland boundary to further confirm the delineation.

SVC classified all wetlands using both the hydrogeomorphic (Brinson, 1993) and Cowardin (Cowardin, 1979; Federal Geographic Data Committee, 2013) classification systems, and generally assessed using the Wetland Functions Characterization Tool for Linear Projects (Null et al., 2000). Following classification and assessment, WSDOE-trained scientists rated and categorized all wetlands using the Washington State wetland rating system for western Washington – Revised. Washington State Department of Ecology Publication # 04-06-029 (Hruby, 2014) and definitions established in RZC 21.64.030.A.

The OHW mark determinations were made using the WSDOE’s method detailed in Determining the Ordinary High Water Mark for Shoreline Management Act Compliance in Washington State (Anderson et al, 2016) and the definitions established in the Shoreline Management Act (Revised Code of Washington [RCW] 90.58.030(2)(b) and Washington Administrative Code (WAC) 173-22-030(11). To mark the OHW of the stream, blue surveyor’s flagging was alpha-numerically labeled and tied to vegetation or wooden stakes.

The fish and wildlife habitat assessment was conducted during the same site visits by qualified fish and wildlife biologists. The experienced biologists made visual observations using stationary and walking survey methods for both aquatic and upland habitats noting any special habitat features or signs of fish and wildlife activity.

Chapter 4. Existing Conditions

4.1 Landscape Setting

The subject property is located in a residential setting in the Kirkland area of the City of Redmond, Washington (Figure 2). The subject property is currently developed with two single-family residences and associated infrastructure. Adjacent properties consist of single-family residential properties with maintained lawns, fields, and forested areas and undeveloped properties. The subject property abuts NE 100th Street to the north.

Topography on the site generally slopes downward to the south, with elevations ranging between approximately 295 feet above mean sea level (amsl) in the northern portion of the site to 240 feet amsl in the southern portion of the site. A King County topographic map is provided in Appendix B3. The site is located within Water Resource Inventory Area (WRIA) 8 – Cedar-Sammanish.

4.2 Soils

The NRCS Soil Survey of King County identifies three soil series on the site: Alderwood gravelly sandy loam, 0 to 6 percent slopes; Alderwood gravelly sandy loam, 6 to 15 percent slopes; and Alderwood gravelly sandy loam, 15 to 30 percent slopes. A soil map is provided in Appendix B4.

Alderwood Gravelly Sandy Loam, 0 to 6 percent slopes (AgB) According to the survey, Alderwood gravelly sandy loam, 0 to 6 percent slopes is a poorly drained soil. It is nearly level and undulating. Alderwood soils generally have surface and subsoils that are very dark brown, dark brown, and grayish-brown gravelly sandy loam about 27 inches thick. This soil is very similar to Alderwood gravelly sandy loam, 6 to 15 percent slopes, but it some places the surface layer is up to 3 inches thicker. Some areas include as much as 15 percent Norma, Bellingham, Tukwila, and Shalcar soils. Alderwood gravelly sandy loam, 0 to 6 percent slopes is listed as non-hydric on the King County Hydric Soils List (NRCS, 2001). Alderwood gravelly sandy loam, 6 to 15 percent slopes (AgC) According to the survey, Alderwood gravelly sandy loam is a rolling soil that is moderately well drained and formed in glacial till. In a typical profile, the surface layer (0 to 1.5 inches) is very dark grayish brown gravelly sandy loam overlain with a thin mat of undecomposed needles and wood fragments. The subsoil and the upper part of the substratum (1.5 to 38 inches) are dark yellowish brown, brown, and dark grayish brown gravelly sandy loam. The lower part of the substratum (38 to more than 60 inches) is weakly cemented, compact glacial till. Alderwood gravelly sandy loam, 6 to 15 percent slopes, is listed as non-hydric on the King County Hydric Soils List (NRCS, 2001).

Alderwood gravelly sandy loam, 15 to 30 percent slopes (AgD) According to the survey, Alderwood gravelly sandy loam is a moderately steep that is moderately well drained and formed in glacial till. In a typical profile, the surface layer (0 to 1.5 inches) is very dark grayish brown gravelly sandy loam overlain with a thin mat of undecomposed needles and wood fragments. The subsoil and the upper part of the substratum (1.5 to 40 inches) are dark yellowish brown, brown, and dark grayish brown gravelly sandy loam. The lower part of the substratum (40 to more than 60 inches) is weakly cemented, compact glacial till. Alderwood gravelly sandy loam, 15 to 30 percent slopes, is listed as non-hydric on the King County Hydric Soils List (NRCS, 2001).

4.4 Vegetation

Vegetation on the subject property is dominated by maintained lawn and forest communities. The forest community is dominated by a canopy of Douglas fir (Pseudostuga menziesii) and bigleaf maple (Acer macrophyllum) with an understory of vine maple (Acer circinatum) and sword fern (Polystichum munitum).

4.5 Local and National Stream and Wetland Inventories

The King County wetlands and streams inventory (Appendix B2) does not identify any wetlands or streams on or within 300 feet of the subject property. The DNR stream typing map (Appendix B7) identifies an offsite stream that is non-fish bearing within 300 feet of the subject property. The USFWS NWI map (Appendix B1) identifies one offsite wetland associated with the offsite stream that is within 300 feet of the subject property. City of Redmond Critical Area Mapping identifies one

Class IV stream onsite No other streams or wetlands are identified on or within 300 feet of the subject property.

4.6 Priority Habitats and Species

The WDFW SalmonScape map (Appendix B5) does not identify any salmon-bearing streams or within 300 feet of the subject property. The WDFW PHS map (Appendix B6) does not identify any priority species or habitats in the vicinity of the subject property. No other priority habitats or species are identified on or within 300 feet of the subject property.

4.7 Precipitation

Precipitation data was obtained from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Weather Service weather station at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport in order to obtain percent of normal precipitation during and preceding the investigations. A summary of data collected is provided in Table 1.

Precipitation levels for the June and July 2018 site investigations were below statistical normal for the last 30 days and at approximately normal levels for the 2018 calendar. This data suggests that relatively slightly drier than normal conditions were encountered during the time of the site visits. Such conditions were considered in making professional wetland boundary determinations.

Chapter 5. Results

5.1 Overview of Findings

SVC investigated the subject property for the presence of potentially-regulated wetlands, aquatic areas, fish and wildlife habitat, and/or priority species in June and July 2018. Using current methodology, the site assessment identified and delineated the boundary of one potentially-regulated onsite wetland (Wetland A) and one potentially-regulated onsite stream flagged as Stream Z and known as Gun Club Creek was also identified along the southern boundary of the subject property. No other wetlands, aquatic areas, or priority habitats or species were observed on or in the vicinity of the subject property during the site investigations.

5.2 Wetlands

5.2.1 Overview The site investigations delineated one potentially-regulated wetland (Wetland A) on the subject property. The identified wetlands contained indicators of wetland hydrology, hydric soils, and a predominance of hydrophytic vegetation according to current wetland delineation methodology. Wetland data forms are provided in Appendix D. Wetland rating maps are provided in Appendix F and wetland ratings from the Rose Hill assessment by Radeke (2017) have been adopted by the Applicant. Table 2 summarizes the wetland identified during the site investigation.

Wetland A

Wetland A is approximately 1,098 SF square feet (0.025 acre) in size onsite and is located on the southern portion of the subject property extending offsite to the south and east. Hydrology for Wetland A is provided by surface sheet flow, direct precipitation, and groundwater seeps. Wetland vegetation is dominated by vine maple (Acer circinatum), salmonberry (Rubus spectablis), American skunk cabbage (Lysichiton americanus). Wetland A is a Palustrine Forested/Scrub-Shrub, Continuously Saturated wetland (PFO/SSD). Per RZC 21.64.030.A and Raedeke (2017), the onsite Wetland A is considered a Category II riverine wetland. Table 3 provides a detailed summary of Wetland A.

Dominant Vegetation

Wetland vegetation is dominated by vine maple, salmonberry, and American skunk cabbage.

Soils Hydric soil indicators A4 (Hydrogen Sulfide).

Hydrology Hydrology for Wetland A is provided by surface sheet flow, direct precipitation, and groundwater seeps.

Rationale for Delineation

Wetland boundaries were determined by a transition to a hydrophytic plant community.

Rationale for Local Rating

Local rating is based upon Hruby (2014) rating system per RZC 21.64.030.A.

Wetland Functions Summary Water Quality Wetland A has a moderate potential to improve water quality due to its slope and

persistent, ungrazed vegetation that covers greater than half of the wetland.

Hydrologic Wetland A has a low potential to reduce flooding and erosion due its lack of dense, uncut, rigid plants and distance from areas generating excess surface runoff.

Habitat

Wildlife habitat functions provided by the wetland may include small mammal and bird forage and cover. Wetland A exhibits some interspersion of habitats with the presence of two Cowardin classes and also contains special habitat features such as large woody debris and undercut banks.

Buffer Condition

The buffer surrounding Wetland A is undeveloped and forested with species such as Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), big leaf maple (Acer macrophyllum) and salmonberry.

Page 17: WETLAND DELINEATION & HABITAT ASSESSMENT

1155.0029 – Redmond 9 10 Soundview Consultants LLC Wetland Delineation & Fish & Wildlife Habitat Assessment Report April 8, 2019

5.2.2 Wetland Buffers Wetland A is considered a Category II wetland (Raedeke, 2017) under RZC 21.64.030.A. Per RZC 21.64.030.B.2, Category II wetlands within areas of high impact land use are subject to standard 150-foot buffers.

5.2.3 Wetland Functions

Using the rapid assessment method (Null et al., 2000), Wetland A may provide some water quality, hydrologic, and habitat functions (Table 7). However, these functions are limited by wetland size and the position of the wetlands within the landscape.

Wetland A provides limited water quality and hydrologic functions. Onsite portions of Wetland A do0 not provide significant surface water storage and does not provide opportunities for sediment and nutrient/toxicant removal. The presence of dense herbaceous and shrub layers in the Wetland A and the wetland’s location adjacent to a stream likely slow water movement that contributes to erosion along the stream. Wetland A provides moderate habitat function. Wetland A contains dominant native vegetation with a moderate degree of habitat interspersion that provides habitat diversity within the wetland. Wetland A’s provision of general habitat suitability is limited by the surrounding landscape, which is predominantly developed with single-family residences.

The identified wetlands likely do not provide any function of educational value, uniqueness, or heritage to the best of our professional judgement.

5.3 Streams

5.3.1 Overview The site investigation identified one potentially-regulated, onsite stream (Stream Z-also known as Gun Club Creek) along the southern boundary of the subject property.

Onsite Stream Z- Gun Club Creek The site investigation identified Gun Club Creek running along the south boundary of the subject property. Gun Club Creek is mapped by DNR as originating approximately 56 feet to the southwest of the subject property. The stream is intermittant with an approximate average bank full width of five feet and an approximate 25-acre contributing basin consisting predominantly of urban residential development. DNR identifies the upper reaches of Gun Club Creek as non-fish-bearing, and the lower reaches as fish-bearing approximately 500 feet southeast and downstream of the subject property. Six known fish passage barriers are mapped by WDFW downstream of the site within Gun Club Creek prior to its confuence with the Samamish River. The WDFW Salmonscape map identifies Gun Club Creek as non-salmon-bearing. The stream is being treated as a Class II stream per the prevoius assessment by Raedeke (2018). Salmonid species located within the Samamish River include Kokanee Salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka), Coho Salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch), Chinook Salmon

Feature Name Stream Z-Gun Club

Creek

WRIA 8 – Cedar Sammamish

WA Stream Catalog # 1221397476872

Local Jurisdiction King County

DNR Stream Type Type N – Non-Fish Bearing

Local Stream Rating Class II (Raedeke, 2017)

Buffer Width Required/Provided 150 feet

Documented Fish Use None

Location of Feature Stream Z is located onsite along the southern boundary of the subject property.

Connectivity (where water flows from/to)

The DNR stream typing map identifies Gun Club Creek as originating approximately 56 feet to the southwest of the subject property. Gun Club Creek flows through forested areas and an urbanized area consisting of a system of storm pipe and ditches before connecting with the Sammamish River approximately 1.50 miles downstream. Per WDFW, there are three known partial fish passage barriers (GCM140, GCM050, GCM030) and three total fish passage barriers (GCM120, GCM110, GCM040) between onsite portions of the stream and the Sammamish River.

Riparian/Buffer Condition

The onsite buffer areas are generally comprised of intact native plant assemblages that include canopy cover of Douglas fir and big-leaf maple with an understory of vine maple and western swordfern. The existing undisturbed buffer condition is capable of providing adequate shade and temperature regulation, steam bank stability, water quality and hydrologic function, nutrient cycling, and woody debris recruitment.

5.3.2 Stream Buffer Gun Club Creek has been classified by Raedeke as a Class II stream under RZC 21.64.020.A.2.d. Per RZC 21.64.020.B.3, Gun Club Creek will be protected using a 150-foot buffer.

Chapter 6. Regulatory Considerations

6.1 Local Critical Areas Requirements

The results of the 2018 site investigations identified one onsite Category IV wetland (Wetland A) and an onsite Class IV stream transitioning to a Class III stream approximately 500 feet southeast of the subject property (Gun Club Creek); however, large portions of the wetland are offsite and could not be directly observed. As such, the Applicant has agreed to adopt the wetland ratings of an assessment conducted for the neighboring property to the east conducted by Raedeke in 2017. The Applicant has also agreed to adopt the stream classification of the same assessment by Raedeke. No other potentially-regulated wetlands, aquatic areas, or fish and wildlife habitat were identified on or near the subject property.

RZC 21.64.030.A has adopted the 2014 wetland rating system. For ratings information, see the 2017 assessment by Raedeke and the wetland ratings maps in Appendix F.

The Applicant proposes to locate the nine single-family residences, access roadway, utilities, and associated infrastructure for the plat upland of the identified Wetland A and Gun Club Creek and associated protective buffers. The plat includes providing an open space tract across the 150-foot buffer from Gun Club Creek. This open space tract will also include the entirety of the onsite buffer for Wetland A. With the conservative 150-foot wetland and 150-foot stream buffers and the increased buffering provided by the additional open space tract outside of these buffers, this plat is not anticipated to impact Wetland A, Gun Club Creek, or their associated protective buffers.

6.2 State and Federal Considerations

In a December 2, 2008, memorandum from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and USACE, joint guidance is provided that describes waters that are to be regulated under section 404 of the CWA (USACE, 2010). This memorandum was amended on February 2, 2012 where the EPA and USACE issued a final guidance letter on waters protected by the CWA. The 2012 guidance describes the following waters where jurisdiction would be asserted: 1) traditional navigable waters, 2) interstate waters, 3) wetlands adjacent to traditional navigable waters, 4) non-navigable tributaries of traditional navigable waters that are relatively permanent meaning they contain water at least seasonally (e.g. typically three months and does not include ephemeral waters), and 5) wetlands that directly abut permanent waters. The regulated waters are those associated with naturally occurring waters and water courses and not artificial waters (i.e. stormwater pond outfalls). The 2012 memorandum further goes on to describe waters where jurisdiction would likely require further analysis: 1) Tributaries to traditional navigable waters or interstate waters, 2) Wetlands adjacent to jurisdictional tributaries to traditional navigable waters or interstate waters, and 3) Waters that fall under the “other waters” category of the regulations. In addition, the 2012 guidance identifies thirteen waters or areas where jurisdiction will not be asserted: 1) Wet areas that are not tributaries or open waters and do not meet the agencies regulatory definition of “wetlands,” 2) Waters excluded from coverage under the CWA by existing regulations, 3) Waters that lack a “significant nexus: where one is required for a water to be jurisdictional, 4) Artificially irrigated areas that would revert to upland if the irrigation ceased, 5) Artificial lakes or ponds created

by excavating and/or diking dry land to collect and retain water and which are used exclusively for such purposes as stock watering, irrigation, settling basins, or rice growing, 6) Artificial reflecting pools or swimming pools excavated in uplands, 7) Small ornamental waters created by excavating and/or diking dry land to retain water for primarily aesthetic reasons, and puddles, 8) Water-filled depressions created incidental to construction activity, 9) Groundwater, including groundwater drained through subsurface drainage systems, 10) Erosional features (gullies and rills), 11) Non-wetland swales, 12) Ditches that are excavated wholly in uplands, drain only uplands or non-jurisdictional waters, and have no more than ephemeral flow, and 13) Ditches that do not contribute flow, either directly or through other waterbodies, to a traditional navigable water, interstate water, or territorial sea. Wetlands A and Gun Club Creek likely have surface and/or subsurface connections to waters of the United States; therefore, these features are potentially regulated under Section 404 of the CWA. The WSDOE also regulates wetlands and natural surface waters under RCW 90.48. However, as the plat will likely avoid direct impacts to all wetlands and streams, permitting will not likely be required from USACE or WSDOE.

Chapter 7. Fish and Wildlife Habitat Conservation Areas

7.1 Wildlife Habitat Assessment

Vegetative Cover Types, Site Conditions, and Topography An assessment of the vegetative cover types has been conducted and a map of the three general plant communities found on site is provided in Appendix G. The first plant community encountered proceeding south from the access point at NE 100th Street is landscape and lawn area associated with the two existing single family residences. This plant community extends offsite to the east and west where there is adjacent residential land use. This area slopes moderately to the south and contains the driveways, the two homes and outbuildings. The vegetation is this area is comprised of lawn area, invasive blackberry, and native and ornamental trees and shrubs. The majority of the proposed site development will occur within this plant community area. The second plant community is generally located to the south of the landscape and lawn area and consists of native upland forest cover. This plant community extends offsite to the east and west of the site south of the adjacent homesites. The forest community is dominated by a canopy of Douglas fir (Pseudostuga menziesii), western red cedar (Thuja plicata), and bigleaf maple (Acer macrophyllum) with an understory of vine maple (Acer circinatum) salmonberry (Rubus spectabilis) and swordfern (Polystichum munitum). This plant community is common to western Washington in areas of low to mid elevation. Most of this area slopes steeply to the south towards Gun Club Creek and will be preserved within the steep slope, stream, and wetland buffers. The third plant community is located at the bottom of the steep slope and consists of a narrow riparian area transitioning from a wetland plant community adjacent to Gun Club Creek to the upland plant community on the slope. This plant community extends east of the site and is associated with offsite portions of Wetland A. Because of the abrupt slope, the wetland transitions to uplands with no distinct riparian plant component. This area will be preserved within an protective tract along with the stream, wetland, and steep slope buffers. Understory vegetation within the wetland is dominated by vine maple (Acer circinatum), salmonberry (Rubus spectablis), and American skunk cabbage (Lysichiton americanus) with the upland forest canopy on the slope extending over the understory. Species Descriptions and Habitat Assessment In addition to searches of DNR Natural Heritage Database and WDFW Priority Habitats, a review of WDFW Threatened and Endangered Species List has been conducted to determine which priority, threatened, endangered, candidate, species of concern, and species of local importance might be found onsite based on the native range and habitat requirements of each species. A list of the potential wildlife species is included in Appendix H. The search of the DNR and WDFW databases yielded no positive indicators. With the onsite and adjacent properties containing wetland areas and a stream, once protected through regulatory mechanisms, these critical areas and their buffers would be considered Core Preservation Areas. These areas onsite will be set aside in an open space tract and designated as a Native Growth Protection Area which will preserve higher quality habitat areas found onsite associated with the wetland, stream, and their buffers.

1155.0029 – Redmond 9 16 Soundview Consultants LLC Wetland Delineation & Fish & Wildlife Habitat Assessment Report April 8, 2019

Potential habitat corresponds to the three vegetative communities. Due to the level of human activity and disturbance in the landscape and lawn plant community associated with the two single family residences, this area is likely not habitat for any of the species listed in Appendix H and would only be suitable for urban adapted species. The upland forest and wetland/riparian plant community areas are characterized by a transition from increased disturbance closer to the homesites, where a portion of the forest canopy extends into and is surrounded by the adjacent disturbed areas, to an increasingly undisturbed forest area proceeding south towards the wetland and stream within the steep slopes of the site. The north end of the upland forest contains invasive Himalayan blackberry at the edge and is subject to impacts associated with the adjacent residential land use. With a more complex layering in the understory, the forested areas within and at the bottom of the steep slopes could potentially provide habitat to the listed species. The forest structure in these areas varies from a sparse swordfern understory to as more vertically complex structure containing multiple layering in the understory and intermediate canopy, including herbaceous groundcover, swordfern, salmonberry, vine maple and western red cedar saplings growing under a dominant tree canopy of second growth Douglas-fir and bigleaf maple. While there is potential habitat within the wetland and stream buffers, except for a small snag, no direct observations or potential indirect indicators of the listed species were found during the onsite investigation. The proposed project will completely avoid impacts to higher quality habitat areas, the wetlands, and stream by limiting site development activities to upland areas outside critical areas and their buffers. During construction, best management practices will be used to prevent erosion and sediment delivery to the protected areas. Potential changes in site hydrology from the proposed development will be mitigated for by the proposed stormwater facility design. Runoff from the plat will be treated for water quality and detained to match the discharge rate of a forested canopy which more closely matches native conditions than the existing residential land use. In addition, the stormwater outfall is designed to prevent erosion and sediment delivery to the critical area by avoiding discharge at the top of the steep slope. Instead, a dispersion trench will be provided at the bottom of the slope with willow stakes planted downslope of the trench. This outfall design will fully dissipate stormwater discharge to prevent erosion and sediment delivery to the stream. See Chapter 5 for further assessment regarding the Wetland A and Gun Club Creek.

Chapter 8. Closure The findings and conclusions documented in this report have been prepared for specific application to this project. They have been developed in a manner consistent with that level of care and skill normally exercised by members of the environmental science profession currently practicing under similar conditions in the area. Our work was also performed in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in our proposal. The conclusions and recommendations presented in this report are professional opinions based on an interpretation of information currently available to us and are made within the operation scope, budget, and schedule of this project. No warranty, expressed or implied, is made. In addition, changes in government codes, regulations, or laws may occur. Due to such changes, our observations and conclusions applicable to this project may need to be revised wholly or in part.

All wetland boundaries identified by SVC are based on conditions present at the time of the site inspection and considered preliminary until the flagged wetland boundaries are validated by the jurisdictional agencies. Validation of the wetland boundaries by the regulating agency provides a certification, usually written, that the wetland boundaries verified are the boundaries that will be regulated by the agencies until a specific date or until the regulations are modified. Only the regulating agencies can provide this certification.

As wetlands are dynamic communities affected by both natural and human activities, changes in wetland boundaries may be expected; therefore, wetland delineations cannot remain valid for an indefinite period of time. Local agencies typically recognize the validity of wetland delineations for a period of five years after completion of a wetland delineation report. Development activities on a site five years after the completion of this wetland delineation report may require revision of the wetland delineation. In addition, changes in government codes, regulations, or laws may occur. Due of such changes, our observations and conclusions applicable to this site may need to be revised wholly or in part.
