Purpose of Stormwater Management Program

The City of Sherman has developed a Stormwater Management Program (SWMP) in accordance with Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) requirements for obtaining authorization for stormwater and certain nonstormwater discharges. The Stormwater Management Program has been developed in accordance with guidelines established by Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for coverage under the TPDES General Permit. The Stormwater Management Program has been developed to:
  • Protect water quality
  • Reduce the discharge of pollutants from the city’s MS4 to the maximum extent practicable
  • Satisfy the appropriate water quality requirements of the Clean Water Act and the Texas Water Code
