Stormwater Management Responsibilities

The City of Blue Springs and citizens all play a role and have responsibilities regarding stormwater management. The City of Blue Springs must acquire and maintain a permit (PDF) from the Environmental Protection Agency in order to discharge stormwater from its city limits.

The city utilizes tools to ensure compliance with stormwater permit requirements through public education, enforcement of ordinances, monitoring of construction sites, good housekeeping practices by city departments, and monitoring at points where stormwater exits the city.
