Important notice about projects permitted under earlier versions of the SWMMWW.
Per requirements in Puyallup’s Phase 2 Municipal Stormwater Permit (effective date August 1, 2019), projects permitted under the 2014 SWMMWW submitted prior to July 1, 2022 that have not started construction by January 1, 2027, and projects permitted under earlier versions of the SWMMWW that have not started construction by January 1, 2022, must be revised to comply with the requirements of the 2019 SWMMWW, or subsequent versions as directed by state regulations. Revisions will need to be approved by Development and Permitting Services, or its successor agency prior to construction.
