Stormwater pond workshop set for September 15th

Before the impending winter rains begin, learn how to maintain and inspect your neighborhood stormwater pond and meet reporting requirements at a free combined Thurston County and City of Tumwater workshop on Saturday, September 15 from 9 a.m. to noon at Tumwater City Hall, 555 Israel Road S.W. in Tumwater.

Participants will visit a stormwater pond and practice filling out annual maintenance reports required by Thurston County and Tumwater.

Most residential developments built after 1985 have stormwater ponds and are responsible for maintaining them. Stormwater ponds are engineered depressions in the land where stormwater runoff gathers and either infiltrates into the ground or flows onward to another body of water. Well-maintained ponds help prevent pollution and flooding and protect property values.

To register for the workshop, call 867-2095 or linnca@co.thurston.wa.us
