Primary surface water management objectives include:
  • The development of a fully functional storm and surface water infrastructure to serve the long-term needs of a growing community
  • The establishment of program elements to meet state and federal regulations
  • Maintaining and enhancing the habitat and environmental features associated with the Quilceda/Allen watershed

Comprehensive Planning

The City of Marysville's Surface Water Comprehensive Plan presents an analysis of Marysville’s surface water system and identifies Capital Improvement Program (CIP) projects to correct deficiencies. It also provides a general overview of each of the City’s four watersheds: Quilceda Creek, Allen Creek, Sunnyside Creek, and Ebey Slough.

The City is implementing a Stormwater Planning program in compliance with the Western Washington Phase II Municipal Stormwater Permit. The City is seeking public comment on the Draft Assessment and Prioritization Report. The selected sub-basin or basins will be prioritized for stormwater facility retrofits, tailored implementation of stormwater program actions, and/or other land development actions.

Comments can be submitted to Brooke Ensor at or 360-363-8288.
