Storm Water Permit Program in Indian Country


Permits for storm water discharges

To prevent pollutants in storm runoff from entering surface waters, the federal Clean Water Act requires that stormwater discharges from construction, industrial and municipal sources obtain NPDES permit coverage.

EPA issues NPDES permits in all Indian Country, and works closely with Tribal water quality programs to educate the regulated community about these requirements

The links below describe each permit program in more detail.
