What is a Stormwater Management Plan?

The SWMP outlines the goals, strategies and programs formulated to improve water quality, address existing and future conflicts between flooding and development, and preserve and enhance valuable natural resources. The recommendations will directly affect the City's capital improvement and operating programs. It describes the City's responsibilities and authority regarding stormwater management implementation, and provides detailed descriptions of stormwater management best management practices.
