This page includes information and links to resources about stormwater management in and around Bonney Lake.

 

Stormwater is rain and snow melt that runs off surfaces such as rooftops, paved streets, highways, and parking lots. As water runs off these surfaces, it can pick up pollution such as: oil, fertilizers, pesticides, soil, trash, and animal waste. From here, the water might flow directly into a local stream, bay, or lake. Or, it may go into a storm drain and continue through storm pipes until it is released untreated into a local waterway.

In addition, the large impervious surfaces in urban areas increase the quantity of peak flows of runoff, which in turn cause hydrologic impacts such as scoured streambeds channels, instream sedimentation and loss of habitat. Furthermore, because of the volume of runoff discharges, mass loads of pollutants in stormwater can be significant.

Video: "Water Undone: The Efforts to Save the Puyallup River Watershed"
  View online at www.uwtv.org 

The Puyallup River watershed is a major source of fresh water into Puget Sound through Commencement Bay in Tacoma. But it suffers from a multitude of pollution problems, including land use policies, as detailed in this documentary from UW Tacoma.

The program takes viewers through the interwoven watershed-river system that supplies water for drinking, irrigation, recreation, food, wildlife and the natural beauty of the Northwest. It explains the effects of urbanization on Salmon runs and the the Puget Sound, and includes information on Lake Tapps and its role in providing a regional water supply source.
 

Video: "Stormwatch: Municipal Stormwater Pollution Prevention"

This 20-minute video provides information on stormwater pollution prevention and offers advice and training for good housekeeping, spill response, materials storage and handling, landscape maintenance and street maintenance, and how to spot potential "illicit discharges" occurring around town.



Where Does The Water Go?

Pierce County's "Where Does the Water Go?" interactive map shows you how water flows in Pierce County. It was designed to promote awareness about stormwater runoff and how pollutants can impact Puget Sound and our natural waterways.
