Lake Forest Park is developing a Stormwater Management Action Plan (SMAP) as part of its commitment to clean water. The plan will identify actions the City can take to help clean up rainwater runoff from developed areas – also known as stormwater – affecting at least one of our high-priority surface water basins in the City.
Why is the City creating a SMAP?
Stormwater is the leading pollution threat to our natural waters like lakes, rivers, streams, and marine water bodies in Washington State. Runoff contamination comes from our vehicles, landscaping chemicals, building materials, and other sources and can harm our natural waters and the people and animals that depend on them. The Washington State Department of Ecology requires that the City create a SMAP as part of a their regulatory program that ensures compliance with the Federal Clean Water Act.
