The Washington Department of Ecology has reissued the Construction Stormwater General Permit, which will take effect on January 1, 2016. If you’re a business engaged in construction activities like excavating or grading, your activities disturb one or more acres of land, and you discharge stormwater, you must be covered by the permit. In particular, construction site operators need to control sediment buildup and soil erosion in order to limit the discharge of sediments in stormwater, as such discharge can be harmful to aquatic plants and animals.
