The City and County of Honolulu's storm drain system is regulated under a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) municipal separate storm sewer (MS4) permit. The most current permit, NPDES Permit No. HI S000002, was issued on January 16, 2015 by the Hawaii Department of Health to the City and County of Honolulu. The effective date is February 16, 2015 until midnight, January 15, 2020.

The latest plan is scheduled to be submitted to the State Department of Health on June 01, 2015. Comments should be sent to ENV by April 3, 2015.
