PART V. STORMWATER MANAGEMENT PROGRAM

A. Stormwater Management Program

The Permittee shall develop, and as necessary continue to develop, implement, and enforce a Stormwater Management Program designed to reduce the discharge of pollutants from the municipal separate storm sewer system to the Maximum Extent Practicable (MEP), to protect water quality and to satisfy the appropriate water quality requirements of the Clean Water Act and the conditions of this permit. The Stormwater Management Program is an enforceable part of the permit.

The Stormwater Management Program shall be the document that describes in detail all activities related to the Permittees program for the management of stormwater in its jurisdiction in accordance with this permit and the appropriate water quality requirements of the Clean Water Act, including long-term goals (that may extend beyond the permit period), Minimum Control Measure-specific goals, priorities, strategies, monitoring, record keeping and reporting. The Stormwater Management Program shall cover at least the term of the permit and be based on an adaptive management system by which the Permittee continuously monitors, analyzes and adjusts the Stormwater Management Program to achieve pollutant reductions to the MEP. The Stormwater Management Program shall include the Minimum Control Measures (described in Part V.C.1 to 8 of this permit) and shall conform with the requirements of Part V.B to V.F of this permit.

Upon their approval by the Commissioner, modifications to the Stormwater Management Program are an enforceable part of the permit and shall be implemented as specified in the permit and in the Commissioner’s approval letter. Prior to approval by the Commissioner of the revised Stormwater Management Program, the Permittee shall continue to operate in accordance with this permit and the Permittee’s current Stormwater Management Program. The Permittee shall, upon the receipt of notice of the Commissioner’s approval of the revised Stormwater Management Program, commence operation under the revised Stormwater Management Program. Modifications to the Stormwater Management Program may be made through the Annual Report, required under Part V.E of this permit, in compliance with Part V.D. 3, 4 and 5 of this permit. Modifications to the Stormwater Management Program shall be implemented as specified in the Annual Report and in the Commissioner’s approval letter.

The Annual Report shall discuss progress toward achieving the long-term and Minimum Control Measure-specific goals of the Stormwater Management Program and shall modify as necessary the priorities, strategies, and monitoring of the Stormwater Management Program to achieve the long-term and Minimum Control Measure-specific goals. The Annual Report shall conform to the requirements of Parts V.E and VI.D of this permit.

B. Minimum Control Measure General Requirements

The Permittee shall manage, operate, and maintain its storm sewer system and areas that the Permittee controls that discharge to the storm sewer system in a manner to reduce the discharge of pollutants to the MEP. Each Minimum Control Measure shall consist of a combination of BMPs, including: system design and engineering methods; education; operation; maintenance; control techniques; a schedule for installation and/or implementation of planned BMPs; and such other provisions as the Permittee and/or Commissioner determines to be appropriate. The BMPS selected by the Permittee for the Minimum Control Measures shall meet the minimum requirements of this permit. In the development of Minimum Control Measures for the Stormwater Management Program, the Permittee shall consider the sources of pollutants and the sensitivity of the receiving waters.

For each Minimum Control Measure, the Stormwater Management Program shall include:

1. identification of potential sources and pollutants targeted for reduction;
2. a description of and the scope of the BMPs for each Minimum Control Measure;
3. identification of staff and financial resources, including estimated annual budgets, for the permit term dedicated to implementation of the Minimum Control Measure;
4. measurable, Minimum Control Measure-specific goals that will be used to determine the success or benefits of the Minimum Control Measure;
5. schedules and protocol for monitoring, recordkeeping and reporting;
6. an implementation schedule for new or revised BMPs; and
7. a detailed description or copy of any agreement between the Permittee and partner(s) to implement the Minimum Control Measure describing the rights, roles, and responsibilities of each party to the agreement.
