The City of Chaska is seeking public input on its Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) as a part of the reapplication process for a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit.
The city uses a SWPPP to work towards preventing pollutants from entering the city stormwater system.
The city’s stormwater system, classified as a MS4, is made up of streets, catch basins, storm drain, gutters, ditches, and stormwater treatment facilities. These systems are separate from the sanitary sewer systems and are designed to convey stormwater drainage to a state water like lakes and rivers.
Because Chaska has a population over 10,000, the City of Chaska holds a MS4 permit from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. The city is currently in the process of reapplying for the 2020 MS4 permit.
Residents play a role in keeping our stormwater system free from pollutants and are encouraged to learn more about the city’s SWPPP.
You can review the current SWPPP (PDF) online, or contact Brent Alcott, Water Resources Coordinator, to request a copy.
