Stormwater Management Program

Each year, the City of Forest Hill is required to file a Storm Water Management Report. This lengthy and carefully prepared document is required to manage specific storm water quality improvements and satisfy the six minimum control measures (MCMs) set forth by the Clean Air Act and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Permits to discharge storm water are issued by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ).

These requirements were developed to minimize pollution in storm water to the maximum extent practicable and effectively prohibiting illicit discharges to the storm water sewer system. They are:

  1. Public education and outreach on storm water impacts
  2. Public involvement/participation
  3. Illicit discharge detection and elimination
  4. Construction site storm water runoff control
  5. Post-construction storm water management in new development and redevelopment
  6. Pollution prevention/good housekeeping for municipal operations

The City tracks, manages, and modifies the control measures to make continuous improvements to the program. Effective management of storm water is important to Forest Hill because it can revitalize surface waters, improve quality of life, and create places where businesses and residents want to live work, play and stay.

The City of Forest Hill has actively participated in storm water quality improvements for many years and will continue on that path. Click here for more information.
