In 2023 the City of Marysville began a new business inspection program. Inspections focus on outdoor activities and storage, stormwater systems, and dumpsters. The goal of this program is to reduce stormwater pollution.
Stormwater is rainwater that runs off hard surfaces, like a parking lot or roof. Stormwater is collected in the storm drains. In many cases, the stormwater flows through underground pipes directly to the nearest stream. It is the responsibility of each business to prevent stormwater pollution from leaving the site. Simple actions can reduce stormwater pollution.
