GOATS ARE BACK IN THE CITY
As an eco-friendly alternative, goats will return to the City of Maple Valley to graze their way through 36 of the City’s Stormwater Ponds (Attached Pond Lists). The goats eat all vegetation in their path and can easily reach areas not accessible by mowers or other mechanical equipment due the steep hillsides and uneven ground. Also, goat manure is a natural fertilizer and adds nutrients to the soil. They will arrive on July 6 and return home in late October 2015.The use of goats to “mow” the City’s Stormwater Ponds has drawn interest and positive feedback from local citizens and kids since 2012. For more information, contact Ken Srilofung, SWM Manager, City of Maple Valley; Public Works Department (425) 413-8800.
