There are a number of Iowa communities that are required, by law, to develop and manage a stormwater program. These communities are permitted by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources under the National Pollutant Discharge and Elimination System (NPDES) Program. Most permitted communities are members of the Iowa Stormwater Education Partnership and a few communites are not permitted, but are members of ISWEP anyway. Please contact them if you want to know ANYTHING or EVERYTHING about stormwater management in your community.
For all other Iowa communities we encourage you to contact your City Clerk / Administrator, City Public Works / Engineering Department or your local SWCD office for technical asssitance with stormwater management issues or report a concern you may have with stormwater runoff and / or water pollution.
