Summary Report of 2021-2026 Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP)




Key Issues

City Staff conducted a public meeting, held via video conferencing, on February 10, 2021 to present the current draft SWMP and receive comments.


The SWMP was shared online for public comments from January 7 to February 9, 2021.





The City is required to have a SWMP to be granted a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit. One step required in the process of NPDES permitting is to provide a status update between the public meeting and issuance of the new permit.


The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program was created in 1972 by the Clean Water Act (CWA) to regulate water quality via the discharge of pollutants from point sources.  The CWA was updated in 1987 to cover non-point source water pollution, which is mainly stormwater runoff.  By virtue of the Clean Water Act, the City must comply with the requirements of the NPDES program, which includes development of a SWMP and supporting stormwater management programs. 


The City’s NPDES permit is due to be renewed in October 2021. Before renewal, a summary of the process, status, and public comments regarding the SWMP must be presented to the elected body overseeing stormwater programs.


A summary of the program is attached.
