Jul. 8, 2015 Upcoming Workshop and Listening Sessions

Reissuance of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) and State Waste Discharge General Permit for Boatyards

The current Boatyard General Permit expires on May 31, 2016. The Washington State Department of Ecology (Ecology) expects to reissue the permit early spring 2016 following a public comment period.

Ecology will host two Workshop and Listening Sessions to present our plan for the Boatyard General Permit and to solicit suggestions for the new permit from current permit holders and other interested parties. Attendees may participate in person at either of the two locations and times identified below.
