Stormwater

Mountlake Terrace was one of the first cities in the Puget Sound region to incorporate stormwater activities as part of a combined Utility Fund in the mid 1960s. On January 1, 2000 the Utility Fund was separated into Water, Sewer and Stormwater Utilities to provide a dedicated funding source to each division.  The Stormwater Division works to protect water quality, enhance habitat, control flooding, and comply with state and federal requirements.  Activities include managing the stormwater comprehensive facility maintenance plan, public education and outreach, site inspection to ensure proper maintenance of stormwater facilities, identification and control of pollutant discharges to the stormwater system, and spill cleanup response.
