STORM WATER INFORMATION

 

Phase II Storm Water Program

On March 10, 2003, the U.S. EPA and Ohio EPA Phase II Storm Water Rules went into effect.  These rules require designated communities to develop and implement a storm water management plan.

 

This program is composed of six minimum control measures

  1. Public Education

  2. Public Involvement

  3. Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination (IDDE)

  4. Construction Site Runoff Control

  5. Post Construction Site Runoff Control

  6. Pollution Prevention / Good Housekeeping

 

The City of Ashtabula Storm Water Program was created to assist communities in Ashtabula County and Northeast Ohio in reaching their storm water management plan goals.

  • Inventory of MS4 outfall locations

  • Dry weather inspections of MS4 outfall locations
