Public Works Natural Resource Management
Clean Water Program
Pursuant to RCW 90.72, Skagit County established a shellfish protection district in 2005 that levied a special assessment on property countywide (see SCC 6.68). The assessment, which began in 2007, raised $773,000 for 2007 and is budgeted to raise $905,000 for 2008. Public Works administers this program and distributes the resulting funds to programs related to the improvement of water quality.
