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.

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.

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.

A043 - Provide Water Quality Financial Assistance

Ecology provides grants, low-interest loans, and technical assistance to local governments, state agencies, and tribes to enable them to build, upgrade, repair, or replace facilities to improve and protect water quality. This includes meeting the state's obligation to manage the Water Pollution Control Revolving Fund in perpetuity. Ecology also funds nonpoint-source control projects such as watershed planning, stormwater management, freshwater aquatic weed management, education, and agricultural best management practices. Grants are targeted to nonpoint-source problems and communities where needed wastewater facilities projects would be a financial hardship for taxpayers. Local governments use loans for both point and nonpoint-source water pollution prevention and correction projects. Ecology coordinates grant and loan assistance with other state and federal funding agencies.

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.

A055 - Restore Public Natural Resources Damaged by Oil Spills

When spills occur, Ecology provides incident notification to natural resource trustees and responds to the incident to assess impacts, collect samples, and determine the extent of injury to state publicly owned resources. Ecology then leads the interagency Resource Damage Assessment (RDA) Committee to assess damages and seek fair compensation for damages to Washington resources. Ecology works with the RDA Committee and responsible parties in funding, planning, and implementing effective restoration projects to restore impacted resources. Ecology manages the Coastal Protection Fund Grant process for restoration work, and performs follow-up restoration site visits to ensure they were effective.

Ecology provides services to site owners or operators who initiate clean up of their contaminated sites. Voluntary cleanups can be done in a variety of ways: Completely independent of the agency; independent with some agency assistance or review; or with agency oversight under a signed legal agreement (an agreed order or consent decree). They may be done through consultations, prepayment agreements, prospective purchaser agreements, and brownfields redevelopment. The voluntary cleanup program minimizes the need for public funding used for such cleanup and promotes local economic development through new industries and other beneficial uses of cleaned properties.
