Stormwater Management

Stormwater Management Program

Jackson County's Stormwater Management Program was created in 2015 to comply with Phase II of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System, part of the Federal Clean Water Act, that requires local governmental agencies to obtain a permit and monitor the storm water runoff in their jurisdictions. The Jackson County Stormwater Management Program is a division of Public Development.


The purpose of the program is to reduce water pollution caused by stormwater runoff. Stopping pollution at its source is the most effective way to prevent harmful pollutants from being washed by storm water runoff into our storm drains, and ultimately, our rivers and creeks.
