Municipal Operations

Our Department and partner agencies provide educational materials/programs, guidance documents, and walk-through inspections of municipal facilities to assist in compliance with the Phase II stormwater program. We also assist municipal operations in our member communities in completing a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP).
