For compliance under the Federal Water Pollution Control Act and amendments (33 USC 1251 et. seq.) and the Ohio Water Pollution Control Act (ORC 6111), dischargers of storm water from small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4) are authorized by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency (OEPA) to discharge from the outfalls to the receiving surface waters of the state. These are done through Notice of Intent (NOI) Applications with OEPA.
In order to be in compliance with these federal and state laws, the City of Beavercreek has filed for and received authorization under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) General Permit for Small MS4s (OHQ000003).
The permit contains stipulations and compliance measures that have been adopted by the City of Beavercreek in the Beavercreek Storm Water Management Ordinance. These items are carried out by the City of Beavercreek with this ordinance and permit and with annual reporting on compliance to OEPA.
The program is carried out through the Public Works Division of the City of Beavercreek. This is done in a collaborative effort within the Public Works Division as well as other departments within the city and the general public within the city.
