Storm Water Management Program

Overview


As a Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Operator, the City of Midlothian was required to develop and submit to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) a Storm Water Management Program (SWMP) by June 13, 2014, in accordance with the Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) General Permit Rules and Regulations. The goals of the SWMP are to minimize pollution in storm water to the maximum extent practicable, prohibit illicit discharges to the storm sewer system, and control construction site storm water pollution. The City must develop and implement the SWMP over a 5-year period, which began on December 13, 2013, and ends on December 12, 2018. The SWMP includes Best Management Practices (BMP’s) for each of the following five minimum control measures:
  1. Public Education, Outreach, and Involvement
  2. Illicit Discharge Detection
  3. Construction Site Stormwater Runoff Control
  4. Post-Construction Stormwater Management in New Development and Redevelopment
  5. Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operations
On May 27, 2014, the City passed Resolution No. 2014-25 adopting the City of Midlothian SWMP

On January 12, 2016, Ordinance No. 2016-01 was adopted to establish Rules and Regulations for the SWMP.

Plan Implementation


One of the required elements of the City's plan is to address Pet Waste in order to reduce the amount of bacteria entering local streams and creeks via pet fecal matter. See our Pet Waste Information Sheet for issues and helpful hints.
