Stormwater

The Stormwater Department works to defend and improve the quality of municipality’s rivers, creeks, and lakes. These efforts occur to allow for compliance with the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Stormwater Permit, overseen by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The priority of a stormwater management team is to identify pollution sources and reduce them through implementing public education, stormwater development regulations, enforcement, watershed management, training programs and maintenance of an efficient citywide storm drain system.
