NPDES Phase II Permit
In 1972, the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program was established under the authority of the Clean Water Act. The NPDES Permit requires that the Town of Harrisburg develop regulations, ordinances, policies, and procedures to implement a Stormwater Program. The purpose of the program is to reduce the discharge of pollutants from the municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4). The Town of Harrisburg's MS4 permit was issued November 11, 2016 and is set to expire November 10, 2021. The Phase II Program Components involve the following:
- Public Outreach and Education
