General Permit Assistance
Streams and creeks in the Edmonds area feed into lakes and Puget Sound. We all drink water, so we are all affected when our water is polluted. When water treatment costs rise, the price of drinking water goes up.  If you like to fish, swim or boat, you may have heard or been affected by advisories warning you not to swim, fish or boat in a certain area because of unhealthy water or too much algae.  Shellfish like clams and oysters cannot be harvested from polluted waters, so anyone that enjoys these foods or makes a living from the shellfish industry is affected.  Money made from tourism and water recreation can also be impacted, as are businesses and homes flooded by stormwater runoff. When we pollute our water, everyone is affected!
