Butler County Storm Water District

News Release
December 5, 2016

The Butler County Stormwater District and its co-permittees have a municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) general permit (#OHQ000002) as part of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program. As part of this storm water permit, Ohio EPA requires the development and implementation of a Storm Water Management Program (SWMP) that satisfied the appropriate water quality requirements of Ohio Revised Code (ORC) 6111 and the Clean Water Act.  This year the Stormwater District was required to update its Storm Water Management Plan which identifies and describes the best management practices (BMPs) selected to address the six minimum control measures (MCMs) in the permit. The six MCMs are:

1. Public Education and Outreach
2. Public Participation and Involvement
3. Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
4. Construction Site Runoff Control
5. Post-Construction Runoff Control
6. Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operations
