MS4 Program

Public Involvement and Participation

An MS4 operator shall develop an SWQMP that includes provisions to allow opportunities for constituents within the MS4 area to participate in the storm water management program development and implementation. An MS4 operator shall ensure, via documented efforts, that sufficient opportunities were allotted to involve all constituents interested in participating in the program process to meet this measure. Correctional facilities will not be required to implement the public participation and involvement.

Controls include: Public surveys for the purpose of identifying the percentage of citizens with storm water and MS4 knowledge to create measurable goals for the City of Kendallville MS4 Program. Promoting Hazardous Waste Days in the community and encouraging citizens to report any illegal dumping in the MS4 area.
