The City has a comprehensive plan to keep the rivers and streams in LO clean and healthy, known as the Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP). We are currently revising the SWMP and the Monitoring Plan.

The City’s Stormwater Management is the lead program in the City’s efforts to protect water quality. Stormwater Management also provides technical expertise and guidance to all City departments to ensure implementation and compliance with the NPDES Permit, TMDL Water Quality Management Plans, and other stormwater related issues.
