2024 Phase I & II Municipal Stormwater Permits Informal Comment Period

We are asking for your early input on the 2024 Muni Phase I and II Municipal Stormwater General Permit. Municipal stormwater general permits regulate discharges from municipal stormwater systems. These drainage systems are separated from sanitary sewer systems and are owned or operated by cities, counties, and other public entities.

Please note that this comment form is for the purpose of submitting informal comments for early input to the Washington State Department of Ecology.

Commenter contact information is optional. However, contact information is necessary if you want to receive future notices related to this topic.

Next Steps
Ecology will NOT respond to comments during this early input informal comment period. We will use this early input to help identify any issues and areas of the permit that need updates. We plan on holding listening sessions in the spring of 2022 for additional opportunities to provide early input. 

The Phase I and Phase II permits expire on July 31, 2024. Depending on the scope of the proposed changes, we may release preliminary draft permit language for informal comment by late 2022. Formal draft permits will be released for formal public comment near the end of 2023. We will consider and respond to formal comments.
