Low Impact Development Draft Proposal Comments

The Department of Ecology conducted a stakeholder advisory process from October, 2009 to August, 2010 to receive input on Low Impact Development (LID) requirements for the Phase I Municipal Stormwater General Permit and the Phase II Western Washington Municipal Stormwater General Permit. A wide range of stakeholders on two committees addressed the technical and implementation aspects of LID.

At a final joint meeting on August 12, 2010, Ecology presented a draft LID proposal outline.

In addition to comments provided at the August 12 meeting in the meeting summary, some advisory committee members and several interested parties submitted written comments on the draft LID proposal outline. These comments are posted below. Ecology will consider these comments as it develops preliminary draft permit language for informal review in the next few months as a step in the permit reissuance process.
