MUNICPAL STORM WATER PROGRAM
What is Storm WaterStorm water is water from rain that does not soak into the ground and enters storm drains, rivers, and lakes UNTREATED. Before entering storm drains, storm water flows from rooftops, over paved areas, streets, construction sites, and land carrying sediment, trash, debris, and other pollutants with it. Polluted storm water degrades our lakes, rivers, wetlands, waterways, and ultimately our drinking water supply.
Types of Pollutants
What are the requirements?The TXR04000 general permit requires Fort Hood to develop a comprehensive SWMP that reduces the discharge of pollutants to the maximum extent practicable, protects water quality, and satisfies the requirements of the general permit. The SWMP outlines the best management practices (BMP), measureable goals, and target dates that Fort hood proposes to implement for the six minimum control measures (MCM) listed below.
