Important Community Stormwater Meeting - January 17, 2017
The public is invited to attend a presentation about the new Annapolis Watershed Improvement Plan, as well as upcoming permit requirements, and analysis of the cost for permit compliance.
The City of Annapolis has to to meet the water quality and load reduction requirements of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit, and Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDL). The EPA expects practices in place by 2017 to meet 60 percent of the necessary reductions. The TMDL is designed to ensure that all pollution control measures needed to fully restore the Bay and its tidal rivers are in place by 2025.
