Kim Ashmore, Stormwater Operations Manager

In 2005 Centralia formed a Storm and Surface Water Utility and established a storm water fee. This was done for the following reasons:

  • An expanding population in the city
  • Increasing development and impervious surface Inadequate drainage in some areas due to non-existent or aging storm water systems
  • New federal/state regulations requiring that the City develop and implement a storm water management program designed to prevent water quality degradation and other storm water problems.

Storm water starts when rain picks up pollutants from streets, sidewalks, and lawns. When it quickly drains into our streams and wetlands without any treatment to remove the pollutants, those pollutants can harm people, fish and animals. Too much runoff at once can cause streams to overflow causing localized flooding. It can also erode the stream banks, damaging property and sending muddy polluted water downstream.
