The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) reissued the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) general permit for a period of five years (Aug. 1, 2013 to July 31, 2018). Dakota County’s responsibilities under this permit primarily relate to transportation-related stormwater discharge and infrastructure within County road right of way.
In accordance with the current, reissued MS4 permit, the County must submit a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). The MPCA reviewed the County’s SWPPP application and determined that it meets or exceeds the minimum permit requirements; therefore, it is ready for public notice. The public notice comment period is from March 11, 2014 to April 10, 2014.
