Stormwater runs to creeks, lakes, and the Puget Sound on JBLM.
Whatever you dump on the ground, can get into our creeks, lakes, and the Puget Sound. If you see a rainbow shine heading towards a storm drain, please call 911 JBLM for spill response.
Only rain down the drain on JBLM!
The Joint Base Lewis-McChord Stormwater Program oversees compliance with the installation's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits. The permits authorize JBLM to discharge stormwater runoff and requires the use of best management practices (BMP's) to reduce pollutants from entering the stormwater system.
JBLM MS4 Stormwater Management Plan: Describes the program that JBLM uses to meet requirements of the MS4 permit.
The JBLM Stormwater Design Guidance document replaces the “Pamphlet for New Development and Redevelopment” document. The JBLM Stormwater Design Guidance describes the requirements that designers must meet when developing sites that will disturb more than 5,000 square feet of ground.
Fill out and submit the Stormwater LID Form as a submittal under the Stormwater Drainage Plan as required by the JBLM MS4 Permit. This form is used to track the design and installation of stormwater low impact development best management practices (i.e. bioretention, permeable pavement, rainwater harvesting, etc.) on JBLM.
