The Newberg Road-Lake Bosworth area is located in west-central Snohomish County, WA, about 15 miles east of the cities of Everett and Marysville. The support document, proceeded by a resource document containing very similar information, was written in response to a petition which requested the Regional Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to designate the area's ground-water supply as a sole source aquifer. The agency determined that the aquifer and recharge area covers approximately 37 square miles. Ground water from the aquifer supplies about 84 percent of the water used by the approximately 2,700 people who live in the area.
