Information
Recommended Action
Approve and authorize execution of an interagency agreement with the Washington State Department of Ecology that will reimburse the City up to $168,066 in support of continued implementation of the Local Source Control Program; authorize the City Manager to execute the contract agreement, said agreement to be substantially in a form as approved by the City Attorney; amend the budget as appropriate consistent with the contract acceptance; and ratify and confirm all acts taken prior to the approval of this motion that are consistent with the intent and purpose of the same.
Background
In 2011, the City of Puyallup Stormwater Management Section applied to the Department of Ecology for partnership in the Local Source Control (LSC) Program. This resulted in an Interagency Agreement Contract, accepted by Council in December 2011, which provided 100% funding for  temporary staff through 06/30/2013.

The Local Source Control Program works within the Stormwater Management Section, providing support for current NPDES Stormwater Permit requirements including IDDE outreach, building the foundation for upcoming new permit requirements, and inspecting private storm drains and small facilities. Since February 2012, the Puyallup LSC person has assisted over 100 local small businesses with hazardous waste management and pollution prevention through site visits and by providing education and information. Local businesses were surveyed as to the benefits and positive impacts this program has provided; a copy of the survey results and comments Please see the attached Puyallup Businesses Survey & Feedback document to read input from local businesses on the benefits and positive impact this program has provided. Ecology completed an independent survey of businesses visited by an LSC Specialist which showed that nearly 75% of those businesses made changes to their practices that affect the environment, including stormwater pollution prevention, as a result of these visits.

For the 2013-2015 biennium, Ecology has elected to renew an interagency agreement with Puyallup as an LSC Program Partner based on the continued success and impact shown in our local community. With this agreement, the Puyallup LSC Program will continue to support local small businesses by providing the education and assistance necessary to identify, prevent, and properly manage toxics, pollutants, and hazardous waste from entering our environment and the stormwater systems. This program will also continue to target support to businesses located in the Clarks Creek and Puyallup River basins to further ongoing water quality improvement efforts to our local streams and river.
Previous Actions (Discussions/Presentations)
The Council approved and accepted a similar Interagency Agreement with the WA State Department of Ecology in December 2011. That contract provided 100% funding for the LSC program and related staff for 02/2012 through 06/2013. This new agreement will provide 100% funding from 07/2013-06/2015.

The City Council is being asked to accept a Department of Ecology Interagency Agreement for continued funding of the Local Source Control Program, supporting local small businesses as well as the NPDES Stormwater Permit.
