Contractors, Start Here: 

Starting in 2020, the SWCD will now be in charge of the MS4 program.

See this brochure for Does Your Construction Site Need a Stormwater Permit?

We will be taking in all MS4 and General Construction Permit applications. Contractors will now have to follow a new application process.  Applications can be found HERE.

Inspections will be completed quarterly after the start of the project. (More may be needed if the site is found non-compliant).

There are fees associated with the inspections and the plan review.
