WHAT IS A STORMWATER PLAN?

Stormwater Management Plan & Elements

The Phase II Permit outlines stormwater program activities and implementation goals that permittees must complete to comply with the federal Clean Water Act (CWA).  

All Phase II jurisdictions are required to develop and implement a stormwater management plan (SWMP) that includes the required activities (minimum control measures), implement those activities within the required timeframes, and submit annual reports to Ecology to document progress towards program implementation goals.
