New stormwater standards
Pierce County residents and developers will now be able to participate in the upcoming changes to the Stormwater Management Manual. These standards affect the cost of construction, how property is developed and the complexity of permit review.
In July, the Department of Ecology (DOE) released the Draft 2019 Storm Water Management Manual for public comment. The document adopted by DOE will influence and control what the County is required to adopt by July 1, 2021.
