Phase II Western Washington Municipal Stormwater Permit
The 2014 Permit and Stormwater Manual Modification process is complete. The modified permits were issued on December 17, 2014 and are effective as of January 16, 2015.
The Phase II permit for western Washington covers at least 80 cities and portions of five counties with an effective date of September 1, 2012. The updated 2013-2018 permit became effective on August 1, 2013.
The EPA phase II regulations went into effect in early 2003 and apply to all regulated small municipal separate storm sewer systems. Ecology first issued the Western Washington Phase II permit in 2007 and modified it in 2009. Ecology reissued it unmodified on August 1, 2012 to be effective through July 31, 2013. At the same time, Ecology also reissued an updated 2013 to 2018 permit on August 1, 2012.
