STORMWATER – MS4

National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II

The Clean Water Act Amendments of 1987 established the NPDES stormwater program.  Phase I of the NPDES Stormwater program began in 1990 and required medium and large municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s) to obtain NPDES coverage.  The expanded Phase II program began in March 2003 and required small MS4s in urbanized areas to obtain NPDES permits and implement six (6) minimum control measures.

  • Public education and outreach on stormwater impacts
  • Public involvement and participation
  • Illicit discharge detection and elimination
  • Construction site stormwater runoff control
  • Post construction stormwater management in new development and redevelopment
  • Pollution prevention/good housekeeping for municipal operations

Addition information regarding the NPDES Program can be found by visiting IEPA or USEPA websites.

To report any suspected illicit discharges (paint, oils, chemicals, etc) to the storm sewers or waterways, please contact the Village Hall at 847-223-2032.
