Municipal Stormwater Permit

Overview

Eugene, like many other cities and counties throughout the United Sates, is required by the federal Clean Water Act to obtain a stormwater permit, referred to as a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. The permit is aimed at protecting and improving water quality in our local creeks and rivers. In Eugene, that includes Amazon Creek and the Willamette River. The permit authorizes the City of Eugene to discharge stormwater runoff from the municipal stormwater system and includes a set of required best management practices and water quality monitoring. In Oregon, the NPDES permitting program is administered by the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ)
