Stormwater Technical Assistance

Based on the needs and/or permit requirements of the local government, TJCOG can provide technical assistance to Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (MS4) NPDES permit holders, or to any entity that wishes to develop, implement, or grow stormwater planning and management initiatives. TJCOG can develop a stormwater management plan (SWMP) to satisfy any or all six Minimum Control Measures (MCMs), including:

  • Public Education and Outreach (see CWEP website)
  • Public Participation and Involvement (see CWEP website)
  • Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination (IDDE)
  • Construction Site Stormwater Runoff Controls
  • Post-Construction Site Runoff Controls
  • Pollution Prevention and Good Housekeeping

as well as any applicable jurisdiction-specific challenges, such as TMDLs, water quality considerations, and general administration. In addition, TJCOG can create any model ordinances necessary to meet these requirements, the development of a stormwater utility fee to help pay for these efforts, and work to educate elected officials and managers in their importance.
