The Washington Department of Ecology (Ecology) is expected to reissue NPDES Phase II permits in June 2012.  The public comment period for the proposed new permit closed February 3rd.  Ecology will issue the final permit after it considers all public comments and makes final changes to the draft permit.  The initial round of Phase II permits was issued in January 2007 and modified in June 2009.  The updated permits will take effect August 1, 2013.  For more information visit the Ecology website.
