Abstract: Management of the surface water system not only rests with state and federal agencies, but more importantly, with local jurisdictions. Recognizing this, a cooperative effort was undertaken by Snohomish County and the cities of Lynnwood and Brier to address problems associated with rapid urbanization. A plan was developed which, when implemented, will benefit natural surface water systems through the use of non-structural and structural measures. Financing of the solutions identified in the plan will be shared by the three jurisdictions based on impervious surface each contributes to the watershed.
