Get the Word Out! Let others Know!
Join this ad hoc group of Washington municipal permit holders, non-profits, state agencies, and regional organizations to develop a more collaborative approach for building better municipal NPDES permits and better working relationships among stakeholders.
This effort will:
• Provide the opportunity to develop a shared understanding of the permit language’s purpose.
• Identify and suggest small changes to the permit that may result in substantial improvements.
• Build a more productive relationship among stormwater stakeholders, and with Ecology so that we can better protect our region’s lakes, rivers, streams, ponds, and marine environments.
Visit the new ad-hoc webpage and join the permit topic groups discussions. For now, please take the 2018 Permit Feedback survey.
