Free Workshop: Managing Stormwater Facilities: Maintenance Guidelines for Private Property Owners and HOA’s


A free workshop to assist neighborhood associations, business owners, and property owners who live on or are responsible for maintaining a stormwater pond or other stormwater drainage system in their neighborhood is being offered by Skagit County, the Cities of Anacortes, Burlington, Mount Vernon, and Sedro-Woolley, the Skagit Conservation District, and Port of Skagit County. Topics will include: how stormwater management systems work; how to keep your system in compliance with new regulations, step-by-step instructions for routine maintenance to prolong the life of your detention pond, improve its appearance, and prevent flooding and property damage; how to plan, budget and assess the neighborhood for upkeep costs; basic things all stormwater facility owners should know and do…and, more. The workshop will include a field tour to a neighborhood stormwater detention system to discuss how to detect problems, keep maintenance costs low, and enhance the function to safeguard water quality in your watershed. Event location: Port of Skagit County Administration Building, 15400 Airport Drive in Burlington.
