Excerpt from the City of Lacey Stormwater Facility Maintenance Guide


Maintaining Stormwater Facilities

All stormwater facilities need to be maintained. Regular maintenance ensures proper functioning and keeps the facility aesthetically appealing. This Stormwater Facility Maintenance Guide was designed to help explain how stormwater facilities work and provide user-friendly guidance on how to maintain facilities to keep them functional and up to standards. As a facility owner or homeowner’s association, you are responsible for regularly maintaining your privately-owned drainage facilities such as ponds, catch basins and pipes. Local governments maintain stormwater facilities located in public roadways.
