Description The Construction Stormwater General Permit (CSWGP) allows businesses to proceed with construction activity under a general permit rather than having to obtain a state or National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) individual permit.

WAC 173-226-120 Economic Impact Analysis requires the Department of Ecology (Ecology) to prepare an economic analysis for the CSWGP. As a general permit technically expires after five years (though entities remain covered by it until a new permit is issued), Ecology analyzes a new permit compared to a baseline of no permit and zero compliance costs. This is also consistent with the intent of the rule to address relative compliance burden.
REQUEST A COPY The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
