Washington Stormwater Center

Washington Stormwater Center serves NPDES permittees and stormwater managers as they navigate the complexities and challenges of stormwater management. We provide tools for stormwater management by supporting municipalities, stormwater permittees, and businesses in their efforts to control stormwater and protect water quality.


The charge to create Washington Stormwater Center was organized by stormwater-minded individuals, businesses, jurisdictions, agencies, and non-profits with the goal to work toward our mission:

To protect Washington’s waters through improvements in stormwater management, serving as the central resource in Washington for integrated NPDES education, permit technical assistance, stormwater management and new technology research, development, and evaluation.

We will help you navigate complexities and challenges to realize the rewards of stormwater management. Our staff provides assistance, information resources, and training on stormwater management. Washington Stormwater Center provides a gateway to research, information and new, innovative, and emerging technologies.
