The King County Water and Land Resources Division is seeking public input as it reviews and updates the 2013 stormwater management program.
The draft program describes actions the county is taking to avoid, reduce and repair damage caused by the amount and quality of stormwater runoff in unincorporated areas.
Stormwater runoff is the top source of toxic pollution to Puget Sound and the region’s rivers and streams.
The public can view a series of short videos describing stormwater management issues, take an interactive online survey and view other supporting documents on the county’s website, www.kingcounty.gov/stormwater.
Following public review, updated stormwater management program documents will be submitted to the Washington State Department of Ecology by March 31.
Citizens are encouraged to share their thoughts after reviewing the online materials. Public comment on the draft will be accepted through March 10.
Email comments to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail them to the Stormwater Management Team, King County Department of Natural Resources and Parks, 201 S. Jackson St., Suite 600, Seattle, WA 98104.
