COCKREHAM ISLAND BUY-OUT FEASIBILITY STUDY
The Cockreham Island Flood Hazard Reduction Buy-Out Study: Cockreham Island is located between the Towns of Lyman and Hamilton, in Skagit County, Washington, and is adjacent to the Skagit River. With its significant history of flooding and flood-related damages, a group of landowners, who collectively own a large portion of Cockreham Island, requested that Skagit County inquire about the possibility of a buy-out of island properties. This study has been presented by GeoEngineers, Inc.
