Storm Water Pollution Prevention Program

The program needs to address six minimum control measures that are outlined in the permit requirements. For all minimum control measures, the city was required to create best management practices to fulfill the permit requirements.

  • Public Education and Outreach - The city distributes educational materials and performs outreach to inform citizens about the impacts of polluted storm water runoff and its affect on water resources.

  • Public Participation/Involvement - The city will provide opportunities for citizens to participate in program development and implementation.

  • Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination - The city has developed and will implement a plan to detect and eliminate illicit discharges to the storm sewer system.

  • Construction Site Runoff Control - The development, implementation and enforcement of an erosion and sediment control program for construction activities that disturb one or more acres of land.

  • Post Construction Runoff Control - The city will develop, implement and enforce a program to address discharges of post-construction storm water runoff from new development and redevelopment areas. 

  • Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping - The development and implementation of a program with the goal of preventing or reducing pollutant runoff from city municipal operations.
