The Phase II Permit for Western Washington (Permit) issued by the Department of Ecology covers 80 plus cities, including Edmonds. The purpose of the Permit is to hold municipalities responsible for discharges from their stormwater systems in order to reduce effects on water quality and aquatic organisms. Only certain discharges to receiving water are permitted. The City of Edmonds Public Works Engineering and Storm Divisions run a comprehensive program to ensure compliance with the Permit requirements.
The City of Edmonds has obtained coverage under a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II Municipal Stormwater Permit issued by the Washington State Department of Ecology. The NPDES is a federal requirement under the Clean Water Act that regulates stormwater and wastewater discharges to waters of the State. The permit requires that all affected municipalities create and implement a Stormwater Management Program (SWMP), which address five required program elements. These elements are:
Each of these required elements has different implementation schedules but all program elements must be fully implemented within the five-year permit term.
The City of Edmonds is required to provide an annual report to the Department of Ecology on its compliance actions and to document its Stormwater Management Program.
