 Illicit Discharge & Elimination Procedure

Stormwater Management Plan

On January 17, 2007 the Department of Ecology issued the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) and State Waste Discharge General Permit for Discharges from Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewers (MS4) in Eastern Washington (the Eastern Washington Phase II Municipal Storm Water Permit; herein referred to as this permit).  This permit became effective on February 16, 2007.  The Phase II Permit automatically applies to cities and counties with populations less than 100,00 located within or partially within a federally designated urbanized area and that operate a municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4), which discharges to a “water” of Washington State (i.e., a river, stream, wetland, etc).  As a result of the City of Yakima’s designation YVC is designated as a Secondary Permittee with coverage under the Phase II Permit.

On February 16, 2007 the Department of Ecology received a notice of intent (NOI) for coverage under the Eastern Washington Phase II Municipal Stormwater Permit for Yakima Valley College.  The Department of Ecology found the NOI complete and granted the College coverage as of May 11, 2007.

Yakima Valley College’s permit coverage number is WAR-04-6201.  The geographic extent of coverage for this permit consists of City of Yakima or Yakima County (North and South Campuses).  The areas excluded from the permit are those campuses located on tribal lands (i.e., Toppenish) and the urbanized area outside of Yakima County (Grandview)
