Stormwater Management

The Town of Signal Mountain is required to comply with the requirements of Phase II of the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting process under the Clean Water Act of 1972 to restore and maintain the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of the nation’s water. Therefore, the Town has appointed a Stormwater Manager and created a Stormwater Utility. The Utility generates revenues to fund stormwater related improvements, to implement Best Management Practices to ensure that stormwater discharges meet applicable water quality standards and reduce pollutants from entering the stormwater system.

The Town’s approach to watershed management addresses not only stormwater quality, but quantity as well by managing the effects of stormwater runoff in culverts, ditches, detention ponds, and other drainage issues. Three key factors were considered in developing priorities:

  • Types of water quality issues to be addressed
  • Exploring solutions to problems, including financial, legal and political obstacles
  • Implementing reasonable solutions
