The SWPPP is the county’s stormwater management program that supports and protects the stormwater that runs through the county’s catch basins, culverts and other related infrastructure. Staff will be available to answer questions or address any concerns residents may have about the program.

This meeting is required by the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Storm Water Phase II Rules.
