Pre-approved Plans and policies are to be referred to by any individual or company designing, constructing or maintaining water, sewer, storm drainage, or street improvements in the City of Kirkland.
The Public Works Department updates the Pre-approved Plans annually. Our most recent update (PDF) occurred in March 2013.
Download the full document (PDF), or individual plans that have been updated or added by following the link to utility type. All plans will have an edit date listed next to the plan title.
Kirkland adopted the 2009 King County Surface Water Design Manual effective January 2010. Due to size of the design manual, it will not be published as part of the Pre-approved Plans. If you need to purchase a copy of the manual, please contact King County Surface Water Management at 206-296-1900, or download it from their web site. For more information regarding the use of the King County Surface Water Design Manual in the City of Kirkland, please refer to Pre-approved Plan Policy D-2., Surface Water Design Requirements.
