Stormwater Division

The City of Milton’s Surface Water Division is comprised of three full-time employees, one of which is the supervisor of the division. Additionally, the City employs one Stormwater Compliance Inspector. This position is a result of the Department of Ecology’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Western Washington Phase 2 Municipal Stormwater Permit requirements.

Surface Water Drainage

The City of Milton created the Surface Water Drainage Utility to provide the services necessary to address surface water issues. The foremost being water quality and flood prevention. This division responds to citizen requests, plans for capital improvements, manages projects, and inspects construction sites within the City. Fees are assessed to properties based on their respective contribution to surface water drainage. This is calculated as the amount of impervious surface area for a given parcel.
