STORMWATER MANAGEMENT PROGRAM
(SWMP)

A SWMP has been developed and is being implemented according to the requirements of Part III of TPDES General Permit No. TXR040000, for storm water discharges that reach waters of the United States. The SWMP was developed to prevent pollution in storm water to the maximum extent practicable (MEP) and effectively prohibit illicit discharges to the system. As required by the TPDES General Permit, the specific activities to be implemented in this SWMP include the following Minimum Control Measures (MCMs):

  1. Public Education, Outreach and Involvement
  2. Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination (IDDE)
  3. Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control
  4. Post-Construction Storm Water Management in New Development
    and Re-Development
