National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES)
Western Washington Phase II Municipal Stormwater Permit

Stormwater runoff flowing through Kitsap County's pipes, ponds, and ditches must now be managed according to the requirements of a new permit issued by the Washington State Department of Ecology in January of 2007 and renewed in August 2013. The Western Washington Phase II Municipal Stormwater Permit requires the County to take actions to educate the public and encourage non-polluting behaviors, look for illegal dumping and cross-connections, enforce erosion and sediment control at construction sites, and use best practices for land management and stormwater system maintenance.

The details of these required actions can be found in the complete permit document (below). 
Kitsap County must report on these actions each year through an annual report and accompanying
stormwater management plan.
