Municipal stormwater permit reissuance

Starting in 2016, we began the process of collecting information and feedback to reissue the Phase I and both Eastern and Western Washington Phase II Permits. We reissued the permits on July 1, 2019. The three permits were appealed and while that process is underway, the 2019 permits are in effect.

Appeal documents

We will periodically update this page to include documents or decisions related to the appeal of the permits. For additional information, see the Pollution Control Hearing Board’s webpage for cases: P19-043c & P19-044.

Comments on the formal draft permits

We held a public comment period on formal draft documents from Aug. 15 to Nov. 14, 2018. View the comments we received during the comment period.

We held a total of seven hearings and workshops across the state, including two webinars. During the workshops, we explained the proposed changes to the permits and answered questions. In Western Washington, the workshops also included information regarding the draft stormwater manual. The public hearings provided an opportunity for the public to give formal comments on the draft permit.
