The City of Everett is making the commitment to clean water, and we need your help!

Everett and over eighty other cities and counties in Western Washington are developing plans to address polluted 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 Planning (SMAP) is to identify a high-priority area in the city and develop actions that will accommodate growth and development while preventing water quality degradation. A successful SMAP strategically identifies approaches to alleviate existing stormwater problems and to protect and improve receiving water conditions while meeting future population targets.

We need your input on prioritizing areas for stormwater actions. It is essential for the plan to reflect the community’s values on water quality and inform how and where future actions are implemented.
