3 MS4 Website  Electronic copy of the MS4 Permits  Compliance Assistance Documents  Links to other storm water resources

4 What is a MS4? What is a MS4?  Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System All separate storm sewers owned/operated by a municipality or public entity that discharge to surface waters of the state All separate storm sewers owned/operated by a municipality or public entity that discharge to surface waters of the state A separate storm sewer system is a system of drainage, including, but not limited to, roads, catch basins, curbs, gutters, parking lots, ditches, conduits, pumping devices, or man- made channels. A separate storm sewer system is a system of drainage, including, but not limited to, roads, catch basins, curbs, gutters, parking lots, ditches, conduits, pumping devices, or man- made channels.

5 What is a discharge point? “Any location on the MS4 owned or operated by the permittee that discharges directly to a surface water of the state, or any location on the MS4 owned or operated by the permittee that discharges to any other separate storm sewer system before discharging to a surface water of the state.”

8 Mapping of Discharge Points For points identified, constructed, or installed after application: Provide an updated map Location Unique identifier Receiving surface waters Latitude/Longitude

9 Mapping of Discharge Points  Labeling of Discharge Point: Required under Jurisdictional Permit Required under Jurisdictional Permit Recommended for Watershed Permittees Recommended for Watershed Permittees

10 Questions?

11 Program Plans  Storm Water Pollution Prevention Initiative (SWPPI) Watershed Permit Watershed Permit Requirements listed on pages 8-20 Requirements listed on pages 8-20 Permittee specific Permittee specific Typically submitted 1 year after issuance of COC Typically submitted 1 year after issuance of COC  Storm Water Management Program (SWMP) Jurisdictional Permit Requirements listed on pages 5-18 Permittee specific Typically submitted 6 months after issuance of COC.

12 SWPPI Development  Flexibility  Complete and approved upon submittal  Implementation begins upon submittal  Department may request modification at any time  PEP/IDEP submitted as part of SWPPI  Example summary table for SWPPI included in assistance document

13 SWMP Development  Complete and approved upon submittal  Implementation begins upon submittal  Department may request modification at any time  Six minimum measures  Best Management Practices  Measurable Goals  Timeframes  Example table for SWMP development is included in assistance document

14 Compliance Evaluations  To begin this permit cycle  Compliance determined based on actions listed in the SWPPI/SWMP File Reviews File Reviews Staff Interviews Staff Interviews Field Visits Field Visits

15 Questions?

16 Alternative Approaches  Allowed for in both permits  Submitted for review and approval with SWPPI or SWMP  At least as effective as the standard permit requirement

17 Alternative Approaches  Key points to include: Detailed description of the approach Detailed description of the approach Participating permittees Participating permittees Part(s) of permit the alterative fulfills Part(s) of permit the alterative fulfills Implementation schedule Implementation schedule Benefits and drawbacks Benefits and drawbacks Evaluation of effectiveness Evaluation of effectiveness

18 SWPPI Alternative Approaches  Allowed for any standard requirement  Example: IDEP or Post-construction Alternative Approaches

19 SWMP Alternative Approach  Allowed for E. Coli and Phosphorus TMDLs  IDEP dry weather screening  Post-construction storm water control requirements

20 Alternative Approval Process  Submit to the Department for review  Implementation Team review and comment  Department Approval/Modification/Denial  Implemented upon approval

21  Modifications may be requested  Modifications must be completed within six months of SWPPI/SWMP submittal, or other date set by the Department If your approach is denied because it needs modification…

22 If your approach is denied…  If modifications are not completed, or if the approach is denied SWPPI/SWMP must be revised to meet applicable standard permit requirement within 90 days of notification from the Department SWPPI/SWMP must be revised to meet applicable standard permit requirement within 90 days of notification from the Department

23 Questions?

24 Scope of SWPPI - Regulated Area  Regulated area = Area under a watershed management planning process (watershed not deferred) and the urbanized area.  Post-construction and PEP are implemented throughout the regulated area.  All other requirements are implemented only where the permittee owns and operates a MS4 in the regulated area

25 Example 1 – Watershed Permittee MS4 A MS4 B MS4 D MS4 C Deferred Watershed Watershed Not Deferred Urbanized Area

26 Scope of SWMP – Regulated Area  Regulated area = the urbanized area  All permit requirements are implemented for MS4s within the urbanized area

27 Example 2 – Jurisdictional Permittee MS4 A MS4 C Urbanized Area MS4 B Non-Urbanized Area MS4 D MS4 E

28 Questions?

29 Public Education Plan/Program  Submitted as part of the SWPPI or SWMP  PEP requirements vary slightly between SWPPI and SWMP

30 Public Education Plan  Methods for determining the overall effectiveness shall be included in the plan  Example methods: Individually or cumulatively assess actions/delivery mechanisms Individually or cumulatively assess actions/delivery mechanisms Survey Survey May include working collaboratively to assess watershed-wide May include working collaboratively to assess watershed-wide Some combination of the above Some combination of the above
