Storm Water Management Program
The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality requires that cities participate in Storm Water Management Programs. The City of Oak Point received authorization of its Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System General Permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Equality in 2014. The general permit requires the City of Oak Point, a Phase II Small MS4 (small municipal separate storm sewer system), to implement a Storm Water Management Program (SWMP). Over the five year term of the permit, the City's SWMP includes best management practices that are developed for each of the following minimum control measures:
- Construction site storm water runoff control
- Illicit discharge detection and elimination
- Pollution prevention/good housekeeping for municipal operations
- Post-construction storm water management in new developments and redevelopment
- Public education, outreach, and involvement on storm water impacts
The purpose of this storm water page is to provide educational materials for businesses, construction sites, residents and children.
