2012 Stormwater Management Plan

This Stormwater Management Plan (also referred to as a Stormwater Management Program [SWMP]) has been prepared by the City of Scottsdale (City) as required by the Arizona Department of Environmental Quality’s (ADEQ) Arizona Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (AZPDES) Permit  Number AZS000020-2010 (Permit). The Permit was issued by ADEQ effective on May 1, 2011 and is valid for a period of five years. 

The SWMP is a comprehensive document that describes the policies and procedures the City implements to reduce, to the maximum extent practicable, pollutant discharges to and from the municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4).  The overall goal of the program is to reduce the impacts of urban runoff to stormwater and to protect the receiving water bodies from the negative impacts of pollution from the City.

To achieve the goal of pollutant reduction, the SWMP addresses nine major program areas including Public Education and Outreach, Public Involvement and Participation, Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination, Municipal Facilities, Private Industrial and Commercial Facilities, Construction Sites, Wet Weather Monitoring, Municipal Employee Training, and Enforcement.  The SWMP is designed to be a comprehensive program document outlining how the stormwater program is implemented and maintained, therefore, three additional sections have been added to describe support activities: SWMP Evaluation, Revision, and Reporting.

The City prepared this updated SWMP to present a five-year strategy for stormwater education, training, control measures, monitoring and assessments, runoff quality, and receiving water quality.  The SWMP describes a wide range of control measures the City will continue to implement during the five-year Permit term and describes the overall approach to stormwater pollution prevention planned by the City.  The SWMP addresses the requirements of the Permit and reflects the needs and constraints of the City.

The SWMP complies with the requirements specified in Code of Federal Regulations Chapter 40 Part 122.26(d)(2)(iv), incorporated by reference in Arizona Administrative Code R18-9-A905. The SWMP has been prepared to meet the requirements identified in the Permit and is certified according to Permit Section 9.12.
