Presentation Abstract

The Port of Tacoma and the Northwest Seaport Alliance are subject to three types of general stormwater management permits. In our quest for improving the water quality of the discharges from our properties, we have collected a large amount of water quality data. We use that data to inform source control and treatment technologies we deploy on our sites. We also share our data and results with tenants to help inform them of their source control and treatment choices based on the actual stormwater chemistry generated by site activities. We also use the data to customize treatment media recipes.

Data and industrial stormwater general permit benchmarks; what we know

The Port of Tacoma and the Northwest Seaport Alliance are subject to three types of general stormwater management permits. In our quest for improving the water quality of the discharges from our properties, we have collected a large amount of water quality data. We use that data to inform source control and treatment technologies we deploy on our sites. We also share our data and results with tenants to help inform them of their source control and treatment choices based on the actual stormwater chemistry generated by site activities.
