Public hearing on stormwater code set for May 6

(Port Orchard, WA)  Proposed stormwater code revisions are the subject of a Public Hearing hosted by the Kitsap County Planning Commission. The public hearing is Tuesday, May 6 at the Kitsap County Administration Building (619 Division Street) in Port Orchard. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. Public comments and testimony will be accepted at the hearing

Kitsap County is proposing several minor changes to its stormwater code found at Title 12, Kitsap County Code (Storm Water Drainage and the referenced Stormwater Design Manual). The stormwater code carries out requirements mandated under the Western Washington Phase II Municipal Stormwater Permit overseen by the Washington Department of Ecology, as well as local requirements specific to Kitsap County.

The County is proposing clarifications and additional language to improve the code’s implementation. The proposal code revision also includes a broad modification to exempt certain rural road maintenance activities from stormwater requirements, unless other triggers are met. The proposed revisions may be viewed at
