The State of Washington first issued a permit in 2007 to comply with the federal Clean Water Act (1972). The City has met these permit requirements and continues to build on its water quality programs each year.

The NPDES permit (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) requires the City to develop the following six program elements:

1.   Public Education and Outreach
2.   Public Involvement and Participation
3.   Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
4.   Construction Site Stormwater Runoff Control
5.   Post-Construction Stormwater Management for New Development 
      and Redevelopment
6.   Pollution Prevention and Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operations

Each year the City submits an annual report regarding the City's efforts to satisfy NPDES permit requirements.
