State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Documents

Entrance to Merrill Creek Operations Base (MCOB)Community Transit has issued a Determination of Nonsignificance (DNS) under the State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) Rules for the Merrill Creek Operating Base (MCOB) Channel Maintenance Plan.

About the project:

  • The Merrill Creek Operating Base (MCOB) is a fully functional transit operations and maintenance facility within Snohomish County. It is owned and operated by Community Transit.
  • Adjacent to MCOB is a channelized section of Merrill and Ring Creek flows from south to north, as well as and outlets into the Possession Sound.
  • This management program provides the guidance for responsible treatments and maintenance activities to the riparian vegetation and stream channel sediment for public safety, stormwater management, and stream channel enhancement.
  • The plan does not negatively alter stormwater behavior or management within the basin and does not affect functionality of MCOB’s stormwater treatment and outfall systems.

After review of a completed environmental checklist and other information on file with the agency, Community Transit has determined that this proposal will not have a probable significant adverse impact on the environment.
