  3. NPDES Permits, Spill Response & Reporting, Illicit Discharge Detection & Elimination


    This training consists of a pre-training test (3 minutes), the presentation(20 minutes), a post-training test and evaluation (5 minutes). It is self-paced.

    Stormwater is rainfall that is not absorbed into the ground. When it flows over roads, sidewalks, driveways, and yards, it picks up chemicals, oils, grease, car wash soap and bacteria from animal waste. This contaminated stormwater goes down storm drains and into ditches across Pierce County and empties directly into streams, rivers and lakes, ending up in Puget Sound. Any pollution introduced to stormwater is termed an “illicit discharge”. All in Pierce County are responsible for keeping this water pollution-free. The County works continuously to educate its residents and businesses about this vulnerable water and protect it from unaware or intentional pollution activities. Approximately 75% of all pollution in Puget Sound comes from stormwater runoff that starts in our neighborhoods.
