Matt Carlson selected as new Asotin County Stormwater Program coordinator

CLARKSTON, WA - There's a new leader for the Asotin County Stormwater management team starting at the beginning of next year.

Matt Carlson is replacing current coordinator Cheryl Sonnen in January. He replaces Sonnen who's retirement comes after working with the Department of Ecology mandated program for five years.

"I've been on the Palouse for the last seven years," said Carlson. "I went to the University of Idaho. And for the past few years I was working with the City of Pullman Stormwater Division and assisting in the management of their stormwater."

The Stormwater Management Program is required by law to ensure local rivers and streams aren't affected by pollution and hazardous waste.
