Phase II Western Washington Stormwater Permits

Western Washington Stormwater Groups

ROAD MAP (Regional Operations and Maintenance Program)
To address municipal operations and maintenance (O&M) activities, as well as collaboration between permittees
and discuss permit requirements, a regional coordination program was developed in July of 2007. ROAD MAP (Regional Operations and Maintenance Program) was created to serve as a forum for identifying, discussing, and developing strategies for implementing O&M-related requirements. Local jurisdictions were invited to participate in a series of meetings and to serve on committees dealing with various O&M elements.

Meetings are held on a quarterly basis. check our calendar for time and location.
