A003 - Implementing Integrated Solutions to Protect Instream Resources

Ecology staff seeks to meet increasing water demands from population growth, while protecting limited instream resources and adapting to climate change. Actions include: • Instream flow rules - Work with local stakeholders to implement and update, as needed, instream flow rules for fish and wildlife, recreation, and other instream resources. Evaluate regions of the state that are experiencing conflict over water, as potential areas for adjudication. • Streamflow Restoration - Work with watershed groups to establish or revise a streamflow restoration plan to mitigate the impacts of new domestic water use. • Section 401 federal licensing of dams - Collaborate with local governments, tribes, and other stakeholders to develop permit conditions for hydropower facilities that ensure minimum instream flows are met and that stream flows are adjusted to adapt to water supply conditions during the 50 year license period. • Water acquisition - Acquire senior water rights to restore and protect stream flows. Review municipal and industrial reclaimed water projects and water system plans to ensure new uses of water do not impair senior rights. Monitor water supply conditions that may impact water rights and the environment, and respond when water supplies are impacted by drought.

A005 - Clean up the Most Contaminated Sites First (Upland and Aquatic)

Ecology protects public health and natural resources by cleaning up and managing contaminated upland sites and contaminated sediments in the aquatic environment. Resources are first focused on cleaning up contaminated sites that pose the greatest risk to public health and the environment. These include sites where contamination threatens drinking water, exists in a large quantity, is very toxic, may affect a waterbody or the environmental health of sediments, or may affect people that are living, working, or recreating near the site. Contamination may be in the soil, sediments, underground water, air, drinking water, or surface water. Ecology also manages multi agency upland and sediment cleanup projects. Cleaning up these sites protects public health, safeguards the environment, and promotes local economic development by making land available for new industries and other beneficial uses.

A006 - Clean Up Polluted Waters

The federal Clean Water Act requires the agency to develop water quality standards and to identify water bodies that fail to meet those standards. The agency does this by reviewing thousands of water quality data samples and publishing an integrated water quality assessment report. This report lists the water bodies that do not meet standards. Ecology then works with local interests to prepare water quality improvement reports to reduce pollution, establish conditions in discharge permits and nonpoint source management plans, and monitor the effectiveness of the improvement report.

A007 - Conduct Environmental Studies for Pollution Source Identification and Control

Ecology conducts pollution identification studies to address known or suspected problems at specific sites and across regional areas. These studies support our efforts under the federal Clean Water Act, as well as the state Water Pollution Control and Model Toxics Control Acts. Studies range from simple water quality sampling for bacteria or dissolved oxygen, to very complex projects assessing the amount of nutrients in large watersheds. Many projects support development of water quality improvement plans or Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDLs) to assess how much of a pollutant a waterbody can absorb without exceeding water quality standards.

A021 - Increase Compliance and Act on Environmental Threats from Hazardous Waste

The agency annually conducts formal compliance enforcement inspections at large and medium quantity generators and hazardous waste management facilities to ensure compliance with state and federal regulations. A credible, formal enforcement capability is essential to preserving the effectiveness of technical assistance and informal enforcement efforts. While staff undertake formal enforcement infrequently, repeated refusal or inability of a facility to correct violations and comply with the regulations will escalate to formal enforcement actions. When possible, a streamlined enforcement and settlement approach is used. This frees up inspectors to do more inspections instead of spending excess time with legal proceedings. The state also periodically amends the Dangerous Waste Regulations to keep our rules current with the federal program and maintain state authorization.

A022 - Increase Safe Hazardous Waste Management

Ecology provides education and technical assistance to thousands of businesses on safe hazardous waste management. Safe management of hazardous waste protects the public and the environment, and enables the state to avoid significant clean-up costs. Although formal enforcement work is essential to maintaining compliance with hazardous waste regulations, training and technical assistance visits also can help bring facilities into regulatory compliance using fewer resources. Even small amounts of mismanaged toxic chemicals can create contaminated sites and pollute stormwater. To address environmental threats from small businesses, Ecology also oversees performance contracts with nine Puget Sound counties (in addition to Spokane County). These contracts provide for Local Source Control Specialists to conduct technical assistance visits to small businesses.

A023 - Manage Underground Storage Tanks to Minimize Releases

Ecology currently regulates over 10,000 active tanks on over 3,600 different properties, including gas stations, industries, commercial properties, and governmental entities. We ensure tanks are installed, managed, and monitored according to federal standards and in a way that prevents releases into the environment. This is done through compliance inspections and providing technical assistance to tank owners and operators. Properly managing such tanks saves millions of dollars in cleanup costs and prevents contamination of limited drinking water and other groundwater resources.

To make sound air quality management decisions, Ecology needs reliable information on the amount and sources of pollution and how it moves in the air. We do three primary activities to collect data: • Monitor air quality to assess trends; focus on compliance; and assess control strategies, health effects, and environmental damage. • Develop emission inventories to quantify pollution released by air pollution sources. • Meteorological and dispersion modeling to forecast movement and concentration of air pollutants, carrying capacity of airsheds, interactions of pollutants, and point of maximum impact of pollution.

A030 - Prepare for Aggressive Response to Oil and Hazardous Material Incidents

This activity ensures large commercial vessels, oil handling facilities, and railroad operators that transport oil by rail maintain state-approved oil spill contingency plans so they can rapidly and effectively respond to major oil spills. State planning standards ensure response equipment and personnel are strategically staged throughout the state. This work is carried out through staff review and approval of contingency plans, drills that test contingency plans, development of geographic response plans, and maintenance of a regional contingency plan in partnership with other agencies.

A031 - Prevent Hazardous Waste Pollution Through Permitting, Closure, and Corrective Action

Facilities that treat, store or dispose of large volumes of dangerous waste must obtain a permit to ensure that their design, construction, maintenance, and operating procedures protect public health and the environment. Washington currently has 14 active facilities that are either in "interim status" or have a final permit. Because these facilities handle such a large volume of dangerous waste they are inspected annually. They are required to have closure plans to effectively deal with the end of their waste management activities. Ecology is currently working on 20 high-priority corrective action clean-up sites. Ecology also ensures that proper financial assurance requirements are in place at all used oil processors and recyclers and facilities treating, storing, or disposing of dangerous wastes.

A032 - Prevent Point Source Water Pollution

Ecology protects Washington's water by regulating point source discharges of pollutants to surface and ground waters. This is done with a wastewater permit program for sewage treatment plants and an industrial discharge program for other industries. A permit is a rigorous set of limits, monitoring requirements, or management practices, usually specific to a discharge, designed to ensure a facility can meet treatment standards and water quality limits. The permit is followed by regular inspections and site visits. Technical assistance and follow-up on permit violations also are provided through various means.

A036 - Protect and Manage Shorelines in Partnership with Local Governments

The Shoreline Management Act establishes a cooperative program between local and state governments, in which local governments develop and administer local Shoreline Master Programs, and the Department of Ecology provides support and oversight. The agency is involved in shoreline management in four primary ways: developing guidelines for local shoreline programs; providing technical assistance to local governments and applicants on shoreline planning and permitting activities; reviewing and approving amendments to local shoreline master programs; and reviewing permits to ensure resource protection and implementation of the law. The agency works with local governments on permit compliance by responding to public inquiries and complaints, making field visits, providing compliance-related technical assistance, and issuing notices of correction, orders, and penalties. Properly managed shorelines provide habitat for fish and wildlife, minimize flooding and property damage, and provide land-use certainty to local landowners.

A049 - Reduce Nonpoint-Source Water Pollution

Nonpoint-source pollution (polluted runoff) is the leading cause of water pollution and poses a major health and economic threat. Types of nonpoint pollution include fecal coliform bacteria, elevated water temperature, pesticides, sediments, and nutrients. Sources of pollution include agriculture, forestry, urban and rural runoff, recreation, hydrologic modification, and loss of aquatic ecosystems. Ecology addresses these problems through raising awareness; encouraging community action; providing funding; and supporting local decision makers. The agency also coordinates with other stakeholders through the Washington State Nonpoint Workgroup, the Forest Practices Technical Assistance group, and the Agricultural Technical Assistance group.
