"Lakeside Industries wants to build an asphalt plant on top of three streams and five wetlands in south King County, near Maple Valley.
It’s across the street from the Cedar River, vital habitat for Chinook salmon.
Meaghan Lodahl, a Maple Valley resident who opposes the plant, asked KUOW to look into this. She and others oppose the plant and noted that King County has invested $57 million over two decades to restore salmon habitat on the Cedar River."
