LID O&M Training Videos - These videos were developed based on the trainings on the Western Washington LID O&M Guidance Document. The videos cover everything related to LID O&M from Municipal Stormwater Permit Requirements, to inspections and maintenance techniques for bioretention, permeable pavement, and vegetated roof BMPs/facilities. The training videos also discuss administrative tools for LID O&M for municipalities.
The SWMMWW is a guidance document. By itself it is not a legally enforceable document. However, several of the NPDES Stormwater General Permits do require the use of the SWMMWW (or equivalent).
For new and redevelopment projects regulated under the Phase I or Phase II Municipal Stormwater Permits: Contact your local municipality for help determining which SWMMWW (or equivalent) applies to your site.
For work regulated under the Industrial Stormwater General Permit (ISGP), the Construction Stormwater General Permit (CSWGP), the Sand and Gravel General Permit, or the Boatyard General Permit: Contact the Ecology Permit Manager for help determining which SWMMWW (or equivalent) applies to your site.
The following Permits reference the SWMMWW:
