The Stormwater Management Plan and Annual Report are requirements of the City’s National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) MS4 Permit.  This Permit requires the City to implement an approved Plan and report annually on the status of that plan. It also requires the City to report on progress made toward specific permit requirements. The City manages a variety of stormwater services including drainage systems, flooding response, regulatory compliance, capital improvements, street sweeping, and much more.
