Seattle’s Stormwater Code Revision Project
featuring Robert Chandler, Seattle Public Utilities
The State Department of Ecology has mandated that Seattle adopt additional stormwater control regulations as a condition of the City's National Pollution Discharge Elimination System permit for its stormwater system. These regulations protect people, property and the environment from damage that could be caused by rain water running off of urban land surfaces. The stormwater runoff can cause flooding, landslides, erosion and other potential hazards. It can also carry pollutants into our creeks, lakes, bays and other receiving waters. Learn about the code revisions and changes to the Director’s rules from expert Robert Chandler of Seattle Public Utilities.
The March meeting will also include our monthly Round Robin of issues and projects in your neighborhood. It is your opportunity to brief our citywide membership about what you are working on and to share perceptions on what is going right and what isn’t with our city government. Don’t forget, it is time to renew your Federation dues!
If you have informational materials you would like distributed at the meeting, please email electronic copies or links to Jeannie Hale at email@example.com.
