General Permit Assistance
In Edmonds, runoff from streets and parking lots is collected in a system of catch basins, ditches, pipes, and other structures, and which then discharges untreated into our streams, lakes and wetlands, which then flows to either Puget Sound or Lake Ballinger.  Stormwater runoff does not go to the wastewater treatment plant!  Although our City crews perform maintenance and repairs to the entire system to reduce flooding, improve water quality and preserve the environment, we can still do more.
