Storm Water Management Plan

General Information

The City of Ovilla has developed this Storm Water Management Plan in accordance with the General Permit No. TXR040000, General Permit To Discharge Under The Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System, from the Texas Commission of Environmental Quality. The Storm Water Management Plan (SWMP) is based on six minimum control measures:

1 Public Education, Outreach and Public Involvement 
2 Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination (IDDE)
3 Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control
4 Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operation
5 Industrial Storm Water Sources
6 Post-Construction Storm Water Management in New Development and Redevelopment

This program is created with goals that are to be completed with City staff and funds available. Various city departments are responsible for implementing the goals. These departments are shown in tables with this plan.

Annual reports will be submitted stating the evaluation of each measurable goal performed that year. Results of any information collected will be submitted with an annual report and revision to the measurable goals, if necessary. The annual report will also summarize the measurable goals planned for the following year.

Ovilla submitted their Notice of Intent Application to the TX Commission on Environmental Quality in January 2019. Permit authorization was issued January 24, 2019 and expires in the year 2024.
