Description The Municipal Stormwater Permits establish a notification and response requirement under special condition S4 Compliance with Standards. Condition S4.F of the permits addresses discharges from municipal separate stormwater sewer systems (MS4s) that are likely to contribute to or cause a water quality standards violation in a receiving water. This section of the permit provides an adaptive management pathway for permittees to address those discharges. Ecology prepared this publication to clarify the permittee’s procedural responsibilities under S4.F, as well as Ecology’s response procedures.
