Stormwater Management & Protection

Polluted stormwater runoff is often transported to Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s) and ultimately discharged into the Mississippi River without treatment.

The City of Monticello, as an MS4, has prepared a 5-year Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program (SWPPP) to reduce pollutant discharge to the maximum extent practicable as required by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has placed the City's Stormwater Pollution Prevention Program (SWPPP) Document (i.e., MS4 Part 2 Permit Application and any associated documents) for coverage under the 2020 Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4) General Permit MNR040000 (MS4 General Permit) on a 30-day public notice comment period from August 10, 2021 to September 10, 2021.  

The public notice and SWPPP documents are located at: 

Monticello's SWPPP document, MS4 annual reports, and other stormwater documents are available upon request. Please email Information or call City Hall at 763-295-2711 for more information.
