Policies and Regulations - 2009 Drainage Manual
The Drainage Design and Erosion Control Manual for Olympia (Drainage Manual) establishes stormwater minimum requirements for new development, redevelopment and road projects of all sizes. Land developers and development engineers use the Drainage Manual to help design site plans, create construction stormwater site plans, and determine stormwater infrastructure. Businesses use the Drainage Manual to help design their stormwater pollution prevention plans.
The City of Olympia is required to regulate stormwater discharges to our municipal stormwater system and to waters of the state, in compliance with the Western Washington Phase II Municipal Stormwater Permit issued by the Washington State Department of Ecology (WDOE). The 2009 Drainage Manual has been modified to fulfill permit requirements for equivalency with the 2005 WDOE Manual.
The 2009 Drainage Manual is applicable to all development projects for which applications are submitted after October 20, 2009.
