Stormwater Management Action Plan (Plan)
Everett and over 80 other cities and counties in Western Washington are developing plans to address pollution in stormwater runoff from streets, homes and businesses. Please see the Stormwater Program section of our Surface & Stormwater page for background on these plans.
The goal of the Stormwater Management Action Plan (Plan) is to identify actions that will protect the water quality of streams and wetlands. The Plan includes ways to take care of existing stormwater problems and protect and improve receiving water conditions as more people move into the area. This Plan has been prepared for North Creek.

The Plan integrates a planning approach that emphasizes protection and improvements to receiving water quality considering current and future development conditions in North Creek.
