Join a focus group to help shape the city’s clean water stewardship campaign l Mayor's Message

We are entering the rainy season. When rain falls on parking lots, streets, and roofs it doesn’t soak into our soil. Instead, it runs along these surfaces collecting oil, grease, fertilizer, and other pollutants before entering a storm drain and flowing into the Puget Sound.

These pollutants can harm human health and wildlife, and our Puget Sound, an important part of our quality of life and a resource for our future generations.

Preventing pollution from entering our waterways is the most effective way to protect our waters. The city of Mukilteo works to reduce this threat through several ongoing efforts such as providing spill kits to businesses and offering educational resources for elementary school classrooms. Your actions can help, too.

We invite you to join a small focus group to help create a vision for the city’s messaging about clean water. Help shape messages and images that remind people how we can all help keep pollution out of our streams, wetlands, and ultimately the Puget Sound. You don’t have to be a stormwater expert - in fact, we are looking for participants who don’t have familiarity with the issues!

The commitment for the focus group is two-hours on one weeknight in late October or early November (exact date to be determined). Each participant receives $75 for their time from the city’s consultant, Enviroissues.

If you are interested, please email Thank you for keeping pollutants out of our water.
