Where stormwater is managed by a jursidiction as a system, they are required to maintain a NPDES permit. That permit defines requirements for discharging pollution, as well as steps that need to be taken to minimize that discharge. Washington State Department of Ecology manages the program, under the authority of Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Water Act authorities.
