With support from the Department of Ecology, the City works with businesses to prevent pollution to our creeks, wetlands, and lakes. City code (KMC 15.52.090-110) requires businesses to put in place best management practices (BMP’s) to prevent pollution. The King County Pollution Prevention Manual describes these BMP's.
Learn how you can prevent pollution at your business.
Business Inspection Process
During a site visit the inspector will do the following:
- Talk with the site manager or owner to gather information about the activities on site.
- Walk the site with the site manager to discuss which BMP's are already in place, and which are still needed.
- Provide onsite technical help to put in place necessary BMP's
- Provide information about corrective actions and follow up with a corrective action letter
