The City's Storm Sewer: Protecting Our Waters

In an effort to protect our waters, the City has a federal National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater permit administered by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA). 

The permit requires that the City, as the owner of a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4), develop and implement a Stormwater Pollution Prevent Plan (SWPPP) to reduce the discharge of pollutants from its storm sewer system to the maximum extent possible.  The City's SWPPP is comprised of six minimum control measures, as required under the permit. 

For more detailed information about the proposed new permit, please visit the MPCA stormwater program website:

The City of St. Paul Park holds a public meeting annually to review the City's Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan.  This meeting is an opportunity for residents to learn about storm water issues as they pertain to the City's Storm Water Pollution Prevention Program (SWPPP).

Residents who are interested in these issues are encouraged to attend the annual meeting held in May at City Hall, 600 Portland Avenue.  Feel free to stop by City Hall to review the City's SWPPP or contact the City Administrator at (651) 459-9785.
