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 2021, the property tax levy for the FCZD is approximately $13.8 million countywide which is ten (10) cents per $1,000 of assessed value.
