  • Stormwater Technical Advisory Committee

    Wenatchee Valley Stormwater Technical Advisory Committee (WVSTAC) – Important Notice

    The WVSTAC is providing a reminder of the local effective date for the 2019 Stormwater Management Manual for Eastern Washington (SWMMEW). On August 1, 2019 and thereafter, all stormwater submittals will be required to utilize the 2019 SWMMEW. Please note that a recent state Supreme Court ruling stated that stormwater regulations do not fall under land use vesting laws. Simply put, on August 1st all stormwater submittals are to utilize the updated SWMMEW even if the development has been previously vested for other project related components.

    Utilizing the SWMMEW
