Little Bear Creek Basin Plan (Water Quality Study)
Background and Purpose
Snohomish County Public Works Surface Water Management (SWM) Division developed the Little Bear Creek Basin Plan to meet the watershed planning requirement for the county’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase I Permit.
The focus of the plan, the Little Bear Creek basin, is located in unincorporated Snohomish County, east of the cities of Bothell and Mill Creek and north of the city of Woodinville.
The intent of the plan is to provide a framework for future stormwater management actions that will protect and enhance the basin’s water quality and habitat resources.
Timelines for Draft and Final Plan
The County presented the Draft Plan for review and comment at an Open House at the Brightwater Center on June 21.
