EVERETT, Wash., November 14, 2022 – Snohomish County Surface Water Management (SWM), a division of the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, is seeking the public’s input and feedback on its Little Bear Creek Stormwater Management Action Plan (SMAP). The SMAP will identify stormwater management actions and strategies, including potential capital projects and program enhancements for the Little Bear Creek Watershed in Snohomish County. SWM is hosting an in-person public meeting to provide the public with an overview of the proposed SMAP actions and water quality improvement projects and invite public comment.
The intent of this 20-year plan is to improve water quality in this watershed. The SMAP continues the work of the 2017 Little Bear Creek Basin Plan (Water Quality Study) and additional studies to identify priority future drainage and in-stream improvement projects. The SMAP is a requirement of the County’s National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Permit.
