The City of Marysville’s Draft Assessment and Basin Prioritization document is available for public review and comment. Deadline to submit public comments is Monday, Nov. 1.
The City of Marysville manages stormwater within the city limits, encompassing runoff from approximately 20 square miles and including 50 miles of streams. The City’s municipal storm sewer system consists of about 288 miles of pipes and ditches and nearly 1,000 stormwater facilities.
The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) requires the city to perform a citywide watershed assessment, prioritize watersheds for retrofits and other stormwater management actions, and develop a Stormwater Management Action Plan. This report documents the assessment and basin prioritization process. It was funded in part by the Washington State Department of Ecology.
