Storm Water Quality Management Plan

Mandated by Congress under the EPA’s Clean Water Act, the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Storm Water Program is a comprehensive national program for addressing polluted storm water runoff.

Fairfield is regulated under that program and must develop and follow a storm water quality management plan to operate its storm sewer system. The plan is based on 6 different types of activities:

  1. Construction Site Runoff Control
  2. Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
  3. Improving Municipal Operations
  4. Post-Construction Storm Water Management
  5. Public Education
  6. Public Involvement
