Do you have issues or concerns about surface water in Shoreline? The City wants your input.

Monday, February 21, 2011

The City of Shoreline’s Surface Water Utility hosted an Open House on January 19 to provide information to the public about the utility’s Surface Water Master Plan Update. 

The 2005 Surface Water Master Plan was written to guide the City’s surface water management program and to identify surface water problems and needs, develop long term solutions that meet regulatory requirements, reflect the community’s priorities and can be funded by the City’s Surface Water Utility. 

The 2011 Surface Water Master Plan Update will provide the Surface Water Utility with the guidance on program priorities and levels of service for the next 5 years. 

These include 
  • capital programs for drainage and water quality, 
  • operations and maintenance, 
  • regulatory requirements, 
  • water quality monitoring and
  • education/outreach programs. 

The plan will assess the level of funding needed to implement the recommended programs.

The City is soliciting comments for the Surface Water Master Plan Update on the project webpage.  There is a comment form on the project webpage that seeks public input on program priorities such as drainage/flooding, water quality, aquatic habitat, maintenance, public outreach...
