Protecting the County from Flood Damage
Because of Pierce County’s beautiful geography, flooding poses a serious threat to our communities and critical infrastructure. In fact, a major flood could cause as much as $725 million in damages and losses, dealing a crushing blow to our county’s economy. Funding for the FCZD comes from a countywide property levy. In 2019, the property tax levy for the FCZD is $8.7 million countywide which is approximately seven (7.6) cents per $1,000 of assessed value.
