Additionally, the State Department of Ecology has a site dedicated to stormwater management with links to more information and useful tools. For example, Ecology offers guidance material for developing an NPDES-compliant Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan for industrial projects.

The Puget Sound Action Team has assumed a leadership role in promoting "low impact development" (LID) techniques, specifically in relation to stormwater management. Information related to LID can be found on the Action Team's "Low Impact Development" program page.
