County: Comment on water issues
Snohomish County's Surface Water Management Division is gathering comments and ideas to balance programs and services with changing needs.
The process could potentially lead to a countywide restructuring of Surface Water Management rates. Surface Water Management invites you to participate in an online survey and provide input at www.survey.surfacewater.info.
Surface Water Management provides a variety of services to its customers and is currently evaluating whether these services should be changed and how the division can do more to solve specific problems that property owners are experiencing.
