The Echo Lake Community
This community incorporates everyone living in areas accessible by Echo Lake Road, south of the State Route 522. There are only two roads that access this area of about 1500 homes.
The Echo Lake Community encompasses 7.1 square miles.
The Emergency Operations Center has been established at the Echo Lake Community Church on Lost Lake Rd, which is centrally located in the community. During emergencies this will be the command, control, and communications for all recovery operations.
Our community is located around Echo Lake and Lost Lake in south Snohomish County of Washington State. We are fortunate to be in the great northwestern corner of the United States, between the Cascade mountains and the Pacific Ocean.
Our climate is mostly moderated by the Pacific Ocean; therefore the region is green year round.
