Last month, staff from the City’s Storm Utility Crew, Surface Water & Pollution Prevention and Fire Department joined members of the Marine Rescue Dive Unit of the King County Sheriff and the Washington Department of Ecology for a combined training on spill response.
The training, which took place at the Marina Boat Launch on Lake Washington, focused on how City staff can respond to incidents such as a boat sinking. In situations like that, fuel or other hazardous materials can leak into the lake. By having clear communication and response procedures in place, City staff can better protect the natural environment that residents appreciate.
