Abstract: We prove the monodromy conjecture for the topological zeta function for all nondegenerate surface singularities. Fundamental in our work is a detailed study of the formula for the zeta function of monodromy by Varchenko and the study of the candidate poles of the topological zeta function yielded by what we call `$ B_1$-facets'. In particular, new cases among the nondegenerate surface singularities for which the monodromy conjecture is now proven are the nonisolated singularities, the singularities giving rise to a topological zeta function with multiple candidate poles and the ones for which the Newton polyhedron contains a $ B_1$-facet.
