Stormwater Pond Workshop for Contractors set for October 24
Free workshop to be held in Tumwater

OLYMPIA - Contractors that inspect and maintain stormwater ponds for neighborhoods and commercial buildings are invited to attend a free workshop offered by Thurston County and the City of Tumwater on October 24th. The workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to noon at Tumwater City Hall, 555 Israel Road S.W. in Tumwater.

Participants will learn about common issues contractors will encounter in inspecting and maintaining stormwater retention ponds and related stormwater system features. They will also learn how to meet Thurston County and City of Tumwater reporting requirements. In addition to the classroom presentations, workshop participants will also visit several local stormwater ponds for demonstrations of the process of assessing maintenance requirements.

Contractors that attend this class may choose to have an asterisk appear by their name on Thurston County's list of stormwater-related contractors acknowledging their participation in this workshop. Potential customers such as homeowner associations can view the list on the County's Stormwater Utility website.
