We regulate wastewater released from municipalities and industries using the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Wastewater Discharge Permit. All wastewater must be treated before it goes into surface water to protect human health and aquatic life. This permit allows discharge of treated wastewater to Commencement Bay.
